Jupiter Artland is delighted to announce an exhibition of new paintings by Andrew Sim will open on 11 May 2024.

Sim lives and works in New York and their practice draws upon their everyday experience, conscious and unconscious, simultaneously creating forms and characters that represent Sim’s experience of Queerness and the visibility of the cis/het gaze. Sim paints archetypes and cultural images in the foreground of their paintings, carefully considering the pivotal time to use certain imagery.

These autobiographical moments document Sim’s use of symbolism and the duality and evolution of Queer lives. Winged horses, sunflowers, rainbows and werewolves all feature in this painted mythology. This exhibition of brand-new work continues Sim’s exploration of trees, with works made on-site at Jupiter and at the artist’s London studio.

It will be the artist’s biggest exhibition to date in Scotland.
