View Exhibition Notice

Art First is delighted to present a new series of paintings by British artist and writer Simon Morley which relates to the exhibition held at Art First in 2007 entitled The English Series. Since then, Morley has left the UK, and he now lives in South Korea and France. Thinking from a distance about ‘British Culture’ is one of the motivations for making the new series. His work has been exhibited internationally, most recently a solo exhibition at Song Art Gallery in Seoul. He is also the author of several books, including ‘Modern Painting. A Concise History.’ Published in 2023 by Thames & Hudson in their World of Art series.
