Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
Simone's work has always focussed on clumps of trees on the horizon of The Ridgeway there is a sense of isolation and vastness of both sky and land. The soft contours and folds of the hillside ripple and echo forming pleasing but sometimes unlikely patterns that are somehow connected to those that used this and in ancient times. Farmers, travellers, shamans, druids, seekers. Long Barrows, Hill Forts, Sarsen Stones and the ubiquitous White Horse Figures.
