Simon Swale

Peripatetic

Peripatetic: in which the artist scrambles, scrapes and scratches, drifts, lurches, and rambles, in an attempt to make sense of both his practice and the world in which we exist, and how one feeds the other.

In this seminar Simon will discuss his developing practice since completing his MFA in 2020. Focusing on work developed as part of his ongoing participation in the Handshake Project, this may be seen as fragmentary, discursive, and somewhat discontinuous. Yet for all this meandering and drifting, it is hoped a certain cohesion may come to light and may in fact define the model for an ongoing practice.
