Simon Black - memory:intuition

To raise the profile of Simon Black's art work, raise money for Marie Curie Hospice Care, and ensure his artistic legacy across the world.

by Raina Sheridan in London, Greater London, England

We did it
On 7th February 2018 we successfully raised £12,240 with 200 supporters in 35 days

New stretch target

Additional funding will allow us to produce a larger catalogue with more images and thereby act as a more complete archive of his work; to digitise the 35mm slides of his work; and to update the website.


WE ARE OVERFUNDING!! CHECK OUT WHAT WE CAN DO IF WE REACH £15,000 TARGET!!

If we can reach the stretch target, we will be able to digitise ALL of Simon's images and re-vamp and update the website. This will leave a lasting legacy, available to anyone and everyone.

Simon was a talented artist who died just before his 50th birthday. March 2018 marks both 10 years since he died and the month and year he would have turned 60 had he lived.

memory :  intuition  is an exhibition to celebrate and promote his work, remember his life, share his unique vision and to raise money for the Marie Curie Hospice in Hampstead where he spent his last days. Please help us make this happen!

The exhibition will open on 17th March - Simon's birthday - at the Camden Image Gallery, London. It will be an opportunity to look at how Simon's work developed over his 30 year career as an artist, to gain an understanding of his ethos and interests, and to raise the profile of his contribution to the art world over his lifetime and beyond.  

The show will be on for 2 weeks. We will be exhibiting oil paintings, watercolours, etchings and drawings as well as some of the sketchbooks that he used for inspiration. Some work will be on sale as will prints of a few of his most loved images, including Departure: The Last Bus (pictured).

A catalogue of works, with a critique by an art expert, will be for sale. The names of all donors will be listed in the catalogue as supporters.

Simon's art can be seen and appreciated in public and private collections abroad and around the UK including at the Royal Free Hospital, London https://artuk.org/discover/stories/artist-in-focus-simon-black, and on his website www.simonblack.co.uk.

Funding will contribute towards the hire of the exhibition space, the catalogue, the private view to which all contributors will be invited, plus all associated costs of running an exhibition. 10% of all monies raised through crowdfunder, and 10% of all sales will be donated to the Marie Curie Hospice in Hampstead.
