Lo Brutto Stahl is pleased to announce the representation of Simon Callery (b. 1960, London, UK).
Simon Callery is a London based painter who has shown extensively in the UK and internationally since the mid 1990's.

Callery's recent works place an emphasis on the materiality of painting that are 'for the body as much as they are for the eye'. He has pursued a number of painting projects outside the studio in the urban environment and the landscape. In particular, he has worked in collaboration with field archaeologists from the Institute of Archaeology, University of Oxford, on a long term ongoing collaboration which resulted in the Segsbury Project, comprising large scale painting, photography and sculptural work.
Forthcoming shows in 2023 include: Ouverture, Palazzo delle Esposizioni, Rome; Simon Callery, Contact Paintings, CAB Burgos, Spain; Arcadia for all? University of Leeds; The Surface of Space and the Depth of Place, Rudolfinum, Prague.
