Abstract, metaphor-laden narratives are Simon Robson’s signature, brought to life using high-end 3D software and organic in-camera moving-image techniques. Robson is a Sydney-based fine artist, practicing in CGI, live-action filmmaking, digital sculpture and drawing. Robson makes work that is “in service of issues that concern mankind and nature as a whole” – shedding light on humanitarian and ecological issues. Work such as Ghost in the Machine employs a Brutalist and technological aesthetic to mirror the urgency of the subjects. This approach stems from earlier techniques, such as paint on glass and papercraft.
