Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

After completing each layer the artist asks “Am I satisfied?” Anything less than a yes, means that the piece is to be fully surrendered, and allowed to be destroyed and overwhelmed by the next addition.
It began with ambient blue horizontal sweeps, which was covered by a portrait of Mellon, which was covered by evenly painted blue.
Next, light blue and white horizontal lines were thrown with a broom throws, followed by dark blue squirted from a tube in long thin arcs.

Artist Profile

Born: 1990

Hometown: Melbourne

Based in: Berlin

Simon Findlay’s practice based approach to painting and performance reflects his focus on colour and intense physicality.

He has thrown rocks in a snow storm whilst wearing only short shorts, painted using only blue for a year, used brooms to make paintings, ripped canvases apart to then staple them back together, thrown paint inside a transparent cube with accompanying musicians, performs live techno/performance art music, and builds immersive art experiences.

He is based in Berlin, Germany since 2016. Prior to this he was in Melbourne, Australia where he threw live music events, toured in bands and studied science/psychology.
