Simone Shubuck: visual artist

simone_photo

In the last several years I have been working with paper, pencils of different sorts, paint and collage exclusively (prior to that, I had been experimenting with all kinds of mixed media: food, grafitti, installation, etc). 

In my current work, I use a semi-conscious process in which I have some bookends, or specific references to concrete things, that I combine with a totally unconscious level of just letting the work happen without exact intentions. I consider the “heart” of my work an ongoing series of small drawings in boxes. The boxes unintentionally made their way into the work by sort of chance. One of the recurring things I find in my practice is that I am always kind of unaware at first that some of the most interesting things I’m doing are the things I don’t consider art. Initially these boxes were just something I carted the work around in, with pencils and erasures…a sort of portable studio. Inside there are a pieces that I tend to treat like a mix tape: the edit, the order, the intimacy of thumbing through them is part of the piece.

    I like to imagine you drawing the work as i’m looking at it. That is the exact sensation your work gives me. Great work.
