‘Landscape of Light’ is a contemporary take on the classic tradition of the landscape. Referencing the horizon – a simple but evocative symbol that governs perspective – the work plays with perception and invites contemplation. Blurring the lines between reality and illusion, Sims is most interested in creating work that serves as a vehicle to re-imagine the space encountered – to deconstruct perceived physical limitations – and facilitate a kind of meditative response allowing viewers to interpret the illusion of space created as reality.
Jason Sims is a contemporary Australian artist known for his sculptural works that explore the potential of light and reflection to create simple illusions of space and form. He enjoys working with illusion for its ability to evoke the sublime and its power to interrogate our understanding of the world around us.
