A different angle

Here’s a side of Simon Read you may not be aware of!
Simon is well known for his atmospheric seascapes, but another long-term preoccupation has been the abstract canvases he can often be found quietly working away on.
He doesn’t show them often, though, so there’s a novel aspect to our new exhibition of Simon’s paintings: we have been able to hang a number of the abstract pictures alongside his seascapes and landscapes.
The exhibition starts on Saturday February 28.
