John F. Simon, Jr. is a visual artist and the author of “Drawing Your Own Path: 33 Practices at the Crossroads of Art and Meditation”.
In his latest show, opening October 14th, 2020, at the David Richard Gallery in Manhattan, Simon will premiere a new software artwork and a series of carved paintings.
Simon’s artwork emerges from a drawing practice he has continued daily for over 20 years. These meditative drawings are improvisational and give rise to the concepts and imagery in his larger gallery pieces. The most persistent of the pencil and gouache forms are eventually enlarged as software and CNC carvings. A new work can be seen daily at: www.iclock.com
Simon’s artworks can be found in the permanent collections of The Whitney Museum of American Art, The Los Angeles County Museum of Art, The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, Collezione Maramotti, The Museum of Modern Art in New York, The Brooklyn Museum, and The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, among others.
All students and faculty in the Department of Art & Art History will receive info via Umail prior to the talk. Others may contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
