This is one of Chris Sims oil paintings on board, which is hung directly onto the wall and has a rear frame structure. This work does not need glazing because the wonderful textures and marks made by the artist’s hand are one of the joys of his painting. This is one of a series of three paintings: Southern Charm, Gentle Rise and Dispersed. They work well together or can hang separately.

Chris Sims is a contemporary English abstract painter, using colour and instinctive mark making to evoke or capture a moment in time in the rural English landscape. His paintings are often considered to be reminiscent of the St Ives painter Peter Lanyon. Graduating from Wolverhampton Polytechnic in 1985, Chris worked as a graphic designer for approximately 20 years, but has now been painting professionally for the last 10 years and has a growing collector’s market in the UK.
