“Exploring how those yellows and greens work with each other, talking about new life. The changing light, flowers and socialising of Spring and how it felt particularly strong in contrast to the Winter and isolation of the previous months.”
About the series: Watery paint is layered over the canvas, sometimes it adds colour, sometimes it subtracts. Whilst undertaking these works the artist would think of a motif; watermelons, horizon lines, sunsets, a single colour, Spring, or feel the emotion he was feeling; anger, relaxation, loneliness, exhaustion. To observe how these thoughts and feelings would change the process and the piece.
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 has been 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.
