Works of imagination

The Neil Simone Gallery


Neil Simone is an internationally acclaimed artist who moved from London to make his home in Yorkshire in 1970.  


During his almost fifty year career his work has excited art lovers from all walks of life. With a distinctive style of painting and imaginative concepts, Neil’s work is instantly recognisable. From an early age Neil had a feeling he was destined to become a painter and, having failed to get into Harrow Art School, he began to experiment, creating paintings that expressed his imagination and explored representational painting fused with an alternative reality; how one idea leads to another, how time and the seasons play a part in our perception of reality, and how we all see things from our own perspective.

 Living and working from his converted chapel in Glasshouses near Pateley Bridge, it is easy to see that Nidderdale plays an important part in Neil’s life and helps him to visualise his visions. Not simply just beautifully painted, his work has an ambiguity that always invites interpretation. Entirely self-taught, Neil uses a number of complex techniques to create his thought provoking images, with each painting challenging our perception of the familiar and taking us beyond the usual boundaries. Through the use of innovative perspective and an interest in how light and shade creates three dimensional illusions, Neil’s work continues to captivate audiences, taking them on a journey and inviting them to open their own imagination and explore interconnecting elements that shape their world. Neil’s work continues to expand and evolve, intriguing and captivating audiences the world over. Featured on television and in numerous journalistic reviews Neil has exhibited his work in many leading galleries throughout Great Britain, Europe and the USA. 

If you would like to meet Neil or view his work, he has a permanent collection of Originals and Signed Limited Edition Prints on exhibition at his gallery which is open Thursday-Sunday, or available for viewings by appointment.
