Tidal Gallery: Simon Dobbs
Simon Dobbs is one of many artists featured at the Tidal Gallery, Kingsbridge. I admire his vibrant image. They sing!
WHERE IS THE TIDAL GALLERY?
The new Tidal Gallery is situated at 1 Victoria Place, The Promenade, Kingsbridge, Devon.
Its central location, the bottom floor of a Victorian building, near the Kingsbridge town square and in the Estuary Promenade, makes the visit most inviting, with great views over the water.
MORE ABOUT Simon Dobbs
He studied at St Martins School of Art before training as an Architect and Town Planner. He took up painting full time in the 1990s, exhibiting paintings of the urban landscape in London. Then, for five years, he ran the ‘Seagull Gallery’ in Salcombe showing mainly his own work. Now he paints from his home studio, occasionally organising solo exhibitions in local galleries. He has exhibited in London and Japan, as well as locally in South Devon.
Simon’s paintings are abstracts and semi-abstracts with some figurative hinted shapes. His inspiration is nature and wildlife. He paints in acrylic on large canvases with bright colours and bold brush strokes.
