The Love of Marble
Simon loves working with Marble because of its texture and the potential of its many veins and colours. Although many of his pieces are abstractions, they have their origins in natural forms. Simon wants people to handle them, to look closely, and to be reminded of hidden things in the world around them.
Over the years, Simon has donated some of his work to the charity, Combat Stress, which supports the mental health of war veterans. He has also worked with Poppy Scotland and designed the Sculpture ‘FRANCE 1914’ for the commemoration of the end of the First World War in aid of the charity. The Sculpture represents the last remaining tree on the battlefront standing in a desolate landscape but a symbol of hope. It is made from Black and Gold Portoro Marble.
It can be seen at the following venues from March 2016 to 2019.
- The Peoples Palace Glasgow
- The Kelvingrove Art Gallery Glasgow
- The Riverside Museum Glasgow
Simon hopes that people who see this piece will remember those who have given their lives for this country and that they will leave a donation to Poppy Scotland. The Sculpture is for sale and will go to auction at the end of the exhibition to help the Charity.
