Residency dates: 23 January - 2 March 2017
Simon explores identity and what it means to be both ‘rural’ and queer. He attempts to queer, and make contemporary, rural themes such as landscape painting and slipware pottery. He also collaborates with artist Lucy Stein as BLISS (Bayliss & Stein), and has recently set up the ‘Artist Tea Towel Company’. Simon is based in Cornwall.
