Statement
Working with Print Media is how Hans Jürgen Simon characterizes his work and simultaneously describes the material out of which he fashions his art. Simon, one of the artists in Paperworks: material as medium, which opens at the Flinn Gallery in the Greenwich Library in Greenwich on May10th, creates works from printed pages, some of which have not found their way to a reader. He dissects newspapers and returned books and magazine pages and finds new relationships, new materials and colortones, concentrating on the quality of the paper, the color and the typography of the media. The result: works that resemble landscapes and topographical forms in which the raw material has been encrypted, leaving for the viewer, according to one critic, "a camouflouaged trail" of letters and image fragments that reveals "a new structure of meaning." In his studio in Georgsmarienhütte, Germany, Simon has been composing his imaginatively original and pure forms since 1991 and presenting them in public nationally and internationally since 1994.
