Stuart Semple

Stuart Semple’s drawing, painting and printmaking re-articulates pop cultural elements into a personal universe of fear, isolation and nostalgia. His works balance a fabricated, mechanized perfection with an emotive painterly surface where symbols collide ambiguously. This deliberate indeterminate nature within the work neither celebrates nor criticizes popular culture, remaining autonomous in the recording of visual contemporary reality. Stuart Semple, who currently lives and works in London and Dorset, has exhibited worldwide in both solo and group exhibitions and has featured in biennale's in Mexico, Liverpool and Sao Paulo. He has also curated group exhibitions internationally. Semple’s sincerity and willingness for sublimation within his work has placed him as one of the leading exponents within a new generation of British painters.
