Jason Sims

Contemporary Artist

Jason Sims is an Australian artist who works in the realm of perceptual art. Using the properties of light and reflection, he creates wall works, free-standing sculptures, large-scale installations and public artworks that create simple illusions of space and form. Sims is most interested in producing 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. He particularly enjoys working with illusion for its ability to evoke the sublime and its power to interrogate our understanding of the world around us.
