Jason Sims - South Australia
Jason is a visual artist working in the realm of perceptual art. Primarily using mirror, reflective glass and lighting, he produces single and multiple piece wall works, freestanding sculptures and large scale installations that create the illusion of space and form.
Jason is interested in creating work that facilitates a visceral experience for the viewer, a kind of tug of war between instinct and intellect whereby (hopefully) intellect surrenders, at least for a moment. His work serves as a vehicle to reimagine the space encountered, to deconstruct perceived physical limitations and facilitate a kind of meditative response allowing viewers to interpret the illusion of space created as reality.
'Though we are largely shaped by individual experience through feedback received from our senses, exercising our imagination can change the way we perceive the world around us and how we question assumed truths. I am particularly inspired to create work that challenges perceptual systems through compelling the use of one’s imagination, as it is this quality that allows us to see the world in new ways.' - Jason Sims
