Gallery 9 - Simon Blau


































Simon Blau, someone I have known since the late 80's and admired since...

His work has evolved through his persistence to re-educate his public in abstraction!!!

These works evoke a memory or a story which intertwines throughout this collection...

When I stand in front of one of these works, I feel a sense of almost certain and uncertain reality...I spoke to a few onlookers and some where unsure or just didn't understand, but that is the beauty of Simon Blau's paintings...These are intelligent paintings, paintings not to be dismissed, paintings with a beauty deep within, a soul for each...Paintings to be acquainted with and understood...

And it's also a wonderful change to go to a gallery and see a painting show with the paintings not all the same size, oblong, circles and just not square...A variety on reality...

Bravo Mr Blau
