Despard is pleased to welcome Sydney based artist Simon Blau!
Simon Blau uses painted abstraction to explore the nature of existence and the tenuous link between materiality and immateriality. Blau’s work contemplates the true nature of painting, helping to visualise the various roles it plays within his practice, including action, interpretation and as object. As such, Blau’s paintings become a record of his creative intentions, investigations, thoughts and choices, exploring its ability to transcend objects and ideas beyond reality.
‘When you are painting there is a meeting point between the reality of the material world and an internal world. It is the flux between these two points that interests me’ – Simon Blau
