SMILE PLEASE
Simon English
21 July – 22 September
Smile Please, Simon English, 2014-2018.
Smile Please is a new body of 'painted drawings' by Simon English, accompanied by other recent works on paper and rarely seen sculptural assemblages created by the artist between 2014 and 2018. English's prolific practice is primarily drawing based. Using ink, pen, graphite and watercolours, he pairs, sequences and arranges these drawings in grids, often comprising more than 100 works on a single wall. Although English's drawings have been widely exhibited since the early 1990's, Smmile Please will be the first UK presentation of his sculptural installations, a practice the artist has been developing since 2014.

CONGRATULATIONS...

to PEER's Director, Ingrid Swenson, who has been recognised in the Queen's Birthday Honours with an MBE.
