Simon is a Sydney based artist whose background is in architecture and graphic design. He’s been constantly painting and exhibiting with graphic design work, and is best known for producing colourful and atmospheric semi-abstract landscapes and bold abstract works.
Drawing inspiration from abstract expression and colourists, Simon is particularly interested in 'edges.' Between degrees of abstraction and representation, edges can come together to create harmony or definition, vibrancy or contrast. His abstract and semi-abstract landscapes aim to evoke scenes of remembered locations without being too literal or realistic.
Simon mainly works on acrylic on board. His layered practice of washes and overlays allows the paint to surface
and diffuse, giving his work the appearance of an oil painting.
