Michael Simpson, 'Flat Surface Painting'

Flat Surface Painting is the first comprehensive catalogue of works by British artist Michael Simpson.

Rooted in a fascination with fifteenth century Venetian and early Flemish Painting, and inflected by the formal restraint and reduced palette of Minimalism, Simpson has developed a distinctive, darkly comedic artistic vocabulary with which to create works that move beyond their subject matter to question the nature of painting itself.

Published on the occasion of the exhibition, Flat Surface Painting at Spike Island, the book includes a foreword by Helen Legg, Director of Spike Island and essays by writer and art historian John-Paul Stonard and Craig Burnett, Director of Exhibitions at Blain|Southern.
