Tim Simmons Statement


Artist Statement
Tim Simmons’s work occupies a particular and unique dimension. His meticulously crafted landscape images sculpted with artificial light disrupt the optic senses, placing the viewer uneasily within a unique photographic vision inspiring narratives from mythology to science fiction. Contrary to much contemporary landscape photography concerned with ‘non-places’ and the aftermath, the sublime and the dramatic take centre-stage here. Simmons’s unsettling representation of these terrains is a poignant contribution to the discourse upon the notion of the ‘natural’ and ‘untamed’ landscape.
