Simon Rivett

“One’s destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things.” – Henry Miller

Simon Rivett trained at Goldsmiths College in London and gained a BA (Honours) in Fine Art. He has been painting landscape from his days as a student, painting the declining industrial landscape of his home in Newcastle, living and working in Lewis and exploring the unique rural landscape of the Outer Hebrides, before moving recently to live in Edinburgh.

He says "I like to take time to look beyond the obvious and understand the depth of this landscape, to interpret its subtle moods and to see the interactions between its different aspects."

Whether Simon is painting mountains in Iceland, the peaty moorland of Lewis, the gentle hills of Cumbria and Northumberland, or the urban city environment, the graphic rhythms and components of these lands are captured in harmony with Simon's painterly skills using oil, pigment, watercolour, turpentine, wax and sand, bringing the composition of the land to life.
