Simeon Nelson
Simeon Nelson’s work is held in the collections of several Australian museums, and in the UK at the Jerwood Foundation and the Cass Sculpture Foundation at Goodwood. He is currently working on a major public commission in Ashford, Kent. His laser-cut plywood sculptures and installations question relationships between architectural ornament and organic growth. Art historical styles and evolving scientific models of the world inform the work. He is particularly interested in the Baroque ‘as a metaphor for a theory of complexity, spatiality and spectacle’.
