A selection of artist's statements and exhibition essays

There is another invisible landscape which the visible landscape can only hint at. This is the rhythmic landscape of energy. This landscape is not the bird but the bird's flight, not the river, but the river's flow, not the tree, but the leaves bending to the wind. And it is to this hidden landscape that Simon's sculptures refer, reducing it and reforming it to abstract pattern.

To own a sculpture of Simon's is not to own a window on the world, but to bring the world itself into the room.
