Simon, an artist primarily known for his sculptural work incorporating software code, has created a print related to his series of Divination Drawings; a years-long practice of daily hand drawings which the artist uses to meditate, but also as source material for larger works. Drawings from the Divination series begin intuitively; a pencil drawing or watercolor is started and then guided by the unconscious thoughts and emotions of that day. Simon's interests include the scientific, spiritual and natural worlds, with mathematics usually playing the role of connectivity. Where many people see technical proficiency, others see art historical references, the beauty of scientific minutia, and the delicate nuances that occur from years of color theory studies.
Heat From the Core Raises Mountains and Opens Oceans is Simon's first collaboration with Editions Fawbush.
