Simon Job

‘Broadly speaking, my practice is an investigation into environments. More specifically I’m interested in various, opposing sub-themes that relate to the environment both natural and built. Themes such as; transience/endurance, control/chaos, and perfection/imperfection. I’m interested in the tension that these discordant pairings present and how they echo life’s own contradictions.

I explore my subject in many ways but my studio practice revolves around the relationships between environments, materials and mark-making both conscious and unconscious. Photography also plays a central part in my working method, I use found images as well as my own to develop ideas and to create new work.

My ultimate aim is always to uncover something less tangible about my subject.’

Glass, paint, paper.

New and found imagery combines with incidental marks and layered transparencies to bring forward an essence of an unknown, partly fictionalised time and place. A dialogue is created between the materials that celebrates the ephemerality, transience and impermanence of time and place that we all experience.
