Known primarily as a portrait artist, Harry Simmonds often works ‘from life’ in the presence of a sitter/model. His monochrome portraiture, painting with acrylics blends abstraction with figuration for a bold and dynamic aesthetic. Identifying as a monochrome portrait artist, Harry Simmonds paints self-portraits, abstract art and modern art. Paintings in this series were executed quickly while working with a model, often a friend of the artist. As a pose is struck, a quick sketch is drawn of it to aid the final selection process.
When a particular pose resonates with artist Harry Simmonds he will ask the model to recreate it for a longer period. Harry Simmonds acknowledges the influence of figurative artist Euan Uglow who liked to create geometrical shapes using his model's bodies and the negative space that surrounded them.
