The work Simon Callery makes is determinedly positive.
As the above video clip shows Callery is both direct and sincere; important qualities he shares with his work. Bold, substantial structures that imply industry in both senses of the word: Callery’s paintings are the result of a clear vision executed to perfection. They are physical without being muscular; imposing but not overbearing and they demonstrate a dogged engagement with painting that is rare in its thoroughness.
It's good stuff.
