Join Glasgow-born artist Andrew Sim for a behind-the-scenes look at their upcoming exhibition at Jupiter Artland.

Get deeper insights into their work as Sim installs and finishes work on their largest ever Scottish exhibition.

Be the first to see their newly commissioned paintings, as they transform The Ballroom into a dreamlike forest, with plants and trees growing beneath rainbows and star-studded skies.

This new series of work, brings the woodland, gardens and wild edges of Jupiter into The Ballroom, focusing on trees and plants to reflect the gallery’s unique setting. Sim’s work reflects on the process of growth, roots and networks to capture a feeling of being between places, in a surreal landscape that is familiar yet strange.

About Andrew Sim
Glasgow-born artist Andrew Sim draws upon their everyday experience, conscious and unconscious, creating forms and characters that represent their experience of Queerness. Sim depicts archetypes and cultural images in the foreground of their paintings, carefullyconsidering the pivotal time to use certain imagery. These autobiographical moments and symbols document the duality and evolution of Queer lives. Winged horses, flowers, rainbows and werewolves have all featured in this painted mythology.
