Gregg Simpson

Bowen Island, British Columbia
[Ottawa, Ontario, 1947]

I am an abstract/surrealist painter living on Bowen Island near Vancouver, BC. I use paint to discover and uncover organic forms, sometimes stylized and dynamic, sometimes loose and subtle. As you'll see in the collections on this website, my work draws upon traditions common to surrealism and abstract expressionism. A lot of my inspiration comes while traveling and absorbing other cultures and landscapes, particularly those of France and Italy.

As the son of an architect who instilled in me a love of modernist art and architecture, I'm also inspired by painters such as Picasso, Miro and Max Ernst. My work is included in public and private collections worldwide and I have exhibited throughout Europe and in Canada, the United States, Asia, and South America.
