Bowery Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of new work by painter Simon Carr, entitled “Inside the World: Scenes from City and Country”.

Carr’s themes of urban and country life, street scenes and landscapes, have become increasingly focused on the interactions of people in environments and the way these interactions create something more than the sum of their parts. The location or subject of the works are secondary to this sense of community or Being that the artist observes and tries to render. For him the excitement is this connection to a greater goal. 

Playground, 2019, acrylic on canvas, 54 x 56 in.

The paintings are large scale, in acrylic with very heavy textures, using sand and paint to build dense surfaces. In this show, for the first time, Carr will also be exhibiting watercolors done in New York and London.
