Simon Marshall

Face & 5

Cartoons and photography, photography and cartoons, colour, colour.

The Bean distils the lot of the Everyman to simple shapes with the message written on the surface. Perhaps we can all suffer victory and defeat with his equanimity.

Photography refers to visual reality in a way no other medium can. The wildest flights of fancy, interpretations, misinterpretations, projections of meaning, failures of understanding, dreams, fancies or desires are grounded by the overwhelming force of physical reality.

With this in mind Simon reaches into the world with interventions in colour and shape that record the passing of man and his cruel and fearful temporary occupation of the world, personally and as a species.
