We are pleased to invite you to view an exciting exhibition of new works by Simon Payton "Conversations With The Moon" at Exhibitions Gallery.

For Simon, a painting has its own life and direction, its own vitality, its own unique quality. It begins in a haze then the image grows, gains impetus and becomes reality.

"Simon Payton has an astute eye and is constantly responding to people, places, situations and experiences. Content acts as a metaphor for the imagination. As with any stylistic shift, it takes an audience some time to find useful linkages between works past and works present and to appreciate that just as time moves on so do the experiences, understanding and interests of an artist. He watches, he listens and he waits." - Dr Carole Shepheard, Professor of Fine Arts Elam School of Fine Arts, The University of Auckland

"In life there is always a beginning and an end. It is given. What happens in between is only of importance to each individual; it is their life. What makes up an individual is a long and time-consuming process. Each character is influenced by so many things; parents, situation, peers, town, country, national identity, diet, drugs, sex, starvation, war. Influences come from everywhere around us. Some good, some bad. What society endeavours to achieve is a natural balance which is to the good of a mass of population." - Simon Payton

The exhibition runs until Saturday 3 September.
