Simon Job is a London based artist originally from North Wales. He holds his MA from Chelsea College of Art and his BA from Liverpool John Moores University.

Working with various combinations of materials and techniques such as painting, photography and installation, Simon intends to subvert the mediums he uses and put into question the validity of those practices whilst exploring the boundaries of their conventional usage. His subjects range from environmental studies to more direct investigations into materiality and media.

The work is simultaneously characterised by both an intuitive handling of materials and what could be described as a hands-off approach that employs the use of found elements and systematic working methods that allow for a certain level of chance and detachment from the artistic process. However, the artists hand is never entirely absent and its often when these two approaches converge, the systematic and the intuitive, that the work becomes active.
