Nr Shoeburyness – Simon Tozer

£120.00

This screen print of the Thames Estuary with decrepit but still charismatic World War Two Maunsell Forts: Shivering Sands, with Red Sands in the far distance. The clouds above are reminiscent of cloud identification charts, but also recall images of vapour and smoke from wartime conflict. This five colour screen print uses a blend of two colours in the sky which helps to give a sense of space, and is hand finished part way through the printing process with coloured pencil, as a hint of light in the water.

Sometimes the ocean and clouds are the subject, sometimes buildings, boats, people or animals.

He remained in London after leaving University and worked as a scenic painter and muralist. In 2002 he moved to Bristol, where he has a studio close to the harbour, where he also teaches screenprint.
