Pavement Pulse RAL1016

Simpson, DJ
DJ Simpson's series of work made in metal combine the industrial process of powder coating with the hand folding of thin aluminium sheets. Like earlier works in laminated sheet materials, normally plywood, Simpson focuses on the qualities and behaviours of materials and material processes. As written by John Chilver, Simpson's practice combines "a sense of intimacy with a certain industrial facticity. Simpson's reflection on material processes takes place in dialogue with modern painting. His completed works (as well as a number of necessary uncompleted or rejected experiments) are the fruits of these reflections."
