Many layers of oil were applied in horizontal streaks over a few months. In the process video the non-linearity of how the layers are applied can be seen. At times a recent layer will become completely eclipsed by a current layer, whilst an early layer remains untouched.
This is part of the artist’s ongoing practice, where he intuitively paints for a few hours each day, allowing for his mood and perception of the day to influence the work.
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.
