Vern Simpson

  • Vern Simpson

  • Vern Simpson's abstracted expressionist style redefines the landscape genre in a modern, contemporary fashion. Intense in colour, edgy, with strong movement, texture, Vern builds compositions that appear as architectural arrangements of light, color and shadow. A formally educated and trained visual artist, Vern explores a tradition of aesthetic effect, where the intention is to experience what the artist feels through shape, form and texture.

    Perhaps best known for his iconic yet controversial "Gassy Jack" sculpture that was located in Vancouver's historic Gastown district, Vern's paintings and sculptures are found in corporate and private collections from coast to coast in his native Canada, as well as throughout the United States, Europe and Asia. Vern currently resides and works in White Rock in British Columbia, Canada.
