Lot description/ information:
Born in Yorkshire in 1973, and described by Lucien Freud in 1997 as, ‘the most promising young artist in Britain today.’ His work is widely collected, both in the UK and abroad. Simon Burton’s figures appear like visions in an unexpected clearing. Mysterious and ancient, they have the air of memories we once knew for fact, but which have long since passed into personal myth. Tapped from English Visionary painting; poetic sensations (that draw on essential questions of human experience), which have congregated on his canvases, as if they have been abandoned by human activity.
