Fleur Simon is a graduate from Central Saint Martins (Foundation) and City & Guilds (BFA). Her practice draws from Edmund Burke’s concept of the sublime in nature, exploring the paradox between the beautiful and the overwhelming and applying this to psychological experience, “by visualising internal landscapes of loss”. Dripping epoxy resin and acrylic paint, Simon references 50’s ‘action painting’, capturing movement and utilising elements of chance in her work.
Simon has exhibited across the UK and has won awards including the Wildcard Prize on Landscape Artist of the Year Award in 2017.
This work – Shore – was selected to show at LARA’s Graduating in Paint, an exhibition of artists working in innovative ways across the field of painting who have graduated from art schools across the UK.
