Statement

Linda Simon is a UK contemporary artist whose work explores symbols, codes, geometry and pattern.  With a particular interest in creating work governed by underlying frameworks, rules, data and the play of chance her practice encompasses a wide range of media and disciplines.

Frequently incorporating materials and processes that are more usually associated with domestic and workplace environments, many of her works are conceived in relation to the process or the material.

An interest in the relationship between women, textiles and technology recurs throughout and is referenced through the use of appropriated materials or the employment of old typewriters and domestic knitting machines as a means of production. The use of self-tracking Apps to collect and translate data into physical objects adds a further dimension to the interplay of digital and analogue.

Following a career as an IT professional, Linda graduated from the University of the Creative Arts (UCA) with a BA (Hons) in Fine Art in 2013. She was one of seven artists to have her degree show installation Ctrl selected for the Platform Graduate Showcase exhibition at Turner Contemporary. She works from her studio in Kent and is a member of the London based White Noise Projects artist collective.
