Space, Time & Matter with Simon Tarrant


Blue Celestial IV


Artist's Statement - States of Existence


Tarrant’s colourful artwork explores the celestial micro and macrocosms of our world. Depicting nature through deep-sea views, luminous landscapes and interstellar imagery - Tarrant takes his inspiration from space, time and matter - illustrating that everything is one and that the universe connects all.


His latest artwork for the States of Existence exhibition was created during a time of self reflection. Tarrant says, ”living and working as an artist is a precarious way of life, with bursts of intense creativity tempered by repeated cycles of vacillating. Continually pondering the timing and relevance of your work, feels unnervingly like a microcosm of the volatile and challenging world we live in, be it politically or as human beings coming to terms with our endangered ecology.”


I am all powerful time
