About Simone Read

My recent body of work is an exploration of aerial ocean pool views. The ‘birds eye view’ creates a sense of calm and peace as I address the rhythm and movement of the ocean and the stillness of the pools. A quiet calm is what my intention is, inviting the audience to connect with this sense of serenity. The combination of inks, gouache and rock salts are intriguingly used in a free and uncontrolled way; an organic connection to the natural space that I am painting. The distinct colours used become a meaningful treatment to the way I highlight the absolute beauty of our ever- changing environment.
