With an emphasis on materiality, deconstruction and remaking, the work of Simon Le Ruez thrives on both aesthetic and psychological tensions. His work revolves around the themes of concealment, transgression and release. His work aims to blur the distinctions between a number of media. Starting from black and white film stills, the works on paper revel in joyful forms of appropriation, interjecting colour and ambiguous form. Other works align themselves in celebrating the use and associative powers of colour. This may be through the altering of antique postcards, hand painted to highlight a given detail within an anonymous location.
