The Letting Go


This is one of Chris Sims larger oil paintings on stretched canvas. We prefer to hang them on the wall as they are, or you can put a tray frame around it, up to you! This work, however, does not need glazing because the wonderful textures and marks in oil, made by the artist’s hand, are one of the joys of his painting.

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.
