Simon Kennedy MRSS
I am a sculptor and installation artist who has exhibited in many high profile galleries and undertaken site-specific installation projects and residencies throughout the world. I am a member of the Royal Society of Sculptors and have been a studio assistant to Fiona Banner, Cathy De Monchaux and Isa Melsheimer. I was a visiting lecturer in sculpture and architecture, a founder member of Sasprojects, creative director of the Dark Matter Cabaret and Les Cabaratz, Astro Graffiti Show. After undertaking a year long art and science research residency in Berlin and a further three years living and working there, I moved my studio back to my home town of London where I worked on a new body of work and exhibited my sculpture "Stardust Principle" at Palazzo Mora as part of the Venice Biennale 2017.
I have recently relocated my studio and home to Argyll, Scotland where I'am working on new sculptures and installation works inspired by research into the cup and ring marks found in Scotland and cosmology.
I have an interest in Classical and Quantum Mechanics, physical and philosophical cosmology, with a particular interest in meteorites, notions of physical scale, relativity and location within dimensional space. I take inspiration from nature, the stars in the sky and the mysteries of the universe. My art works are often a humorous response to the world I see around me, and are explorations into the mysteries of reality and the endless possibilities of the creative imagination. At present I am working on a new body of works exploring notions of scientific iconography and the visual representations of complex scientific theories and mathematical equations.
