Director Biography - Simon Finn

Simon’s practice includes, drawing, animation and sculpture and forms a continued exploration into the variable syntheses between artist, environment and technology. Finn utilises the spatial and temporal capabilities of virtual representations as subject matter that comes into being somewhere between experimental verification and poetic speculation.

Simon has presented twelve solo exhibitions since 2011, including ‘Deluge Rotations’ at Fehily Contemporary and ‘Beyond the Frustum’ at LUMA and the LUVAC in 2016. Group exhibitions in 2015 include 'New Dimensions' at Hill-Smith Gallery, 'Specific Gravity' at MOANA and ‘Synthetica’ (NETS) at Wangaratta Art Gallery, Swan Hill Regional Art Gallery, Gippsland Art Gallery, Wagga Wagga Art Gallery. Simon was a finalist in the Hazelhurst Regional Gallery Art on Paper Award (2015), City of Hobart Art Prize (2015) and the winner of the 2015 Banyule Award for works on paper. In 2014 his work was included in ‘Vertigo’ (Asialink), shown at Galeri Soemardja, Bandung Institute of Technology Indonesia, MoCA in Taiwan and the POSCO Museum of Art, South Korea. ‘Perceptions of Space’ at the Glen Eira City Council and Surge, Plymouth College of Art, England. He has also been awarded the Howard Arkley Award, Kedumba Drawing Award, Athenaeum Award and the Stuart Black Travelling Scholarship.

Finn’s studies include, Master of Fine Art by research at the Victorian College of the Arts, First Class Honors in Fine Art from the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology and Electronic Design + Interactive Media at Swinburne University.
