Acrylic on canvas Simon Powell started painting birds in a bush school in Zimbabwe, he then went on to broad artistic success over two decades in South Africa. This is an artist who paints the flower very much as a living thing. One distinctive quality of his work is that he gives a magnolia blossom or a gleaming deep green leaf the same level of detail worthy of portraiture. The fleshy cream petals of his Magnolia Grandiflora evoke the emotional presence of a Manet and draw on the innate dignity and mystery of every singular plant, case by case, stem by stem. His flowers bear a compositional totality and natural asymmetry that draw the eye back. Strong testimony to an experienced painter entranced by the natural world.
