About Linda Simon

 
 
  • Biography
    I'm a British artist and my practice spans 2D, 3D, textiles and installation. I like making "stuff out of stuff" and appropriate everyday materials, tapping into their individual properties, to create unique and often playful art. 

    My collages combine disrupts appropriated images to create new and alternative narratives influenced by my interest in surrealism and sci-fi/dystopia. They are all one-of-a-kind using original images from vintage books and magazines - they are not digital prints. 

    I graduated from UCA, Canterbury in 2013 with a Fine Art degree and work from my studio in Kent, UK. I've exhibited throughout the UK and was one of seven artists to have their degree show work selected for the Platform Graduate Showcase Award exhibition at Turner Contemporary.  In 2019 I was awarded the prestigious London Group Open President's Prize of a 3 person exhibition at the Cello Factory in London.
