Algorithmic Sea Breeze

For his latest exhibition, Winds Across the Inner Sea at New York's Gehring and Lopez Gallery, artist John F. Simon Jr. has created a number of large-scale works that reflect his continued interest in the relationship between code and its visual representation. Blending the theories of Josef Albers with the abstract painterly elements of Paul Klee, Simon uses his distinctive code to generate limitless combinations of color and composition. With his recent practice of embedding LCD monitors within large and ornate frames of his own construction he reflects on the ephemeral structure of his software through a material one. Part software, part painting, part sculpture, part video, Simon's latest works truly resonate across all four media.
