New projects / work in progress, are on this blog - please use the website lee-simmons.com for an overview of pieces from year 2000 to 2015. The main purpose of this here; is to re-visit those often temporary and public works, logging processes whilst creating a collection of still images: leesimmons.blog/postcards
Paintings made behind closed doors are also being thought about and shared (many for the first time) in an archiving system that overlaps with the above, working forwards from 2011: leesimmons.blog/paintings
This publishing exercise parallels how the line of enquiry has unfolded so far, and is in some ways more akin to looking through a photo album, than communicating a body of artwork.
Following the Red Shoes performance, November 2015, I was approached by Jonny from Billion Bites, who kindly offered to made a documentary video about my art practice. We met for coffee and agreed to collaborate on Postcards Project, which I was due to begin work on at that time.
Below is a short introduction.
