'Space, Image and the Image of Space'

Jakob Simonson was the IASPIS supported artist in resident for three months in 2010. Simonson lives and works in Malmo, Sweden.

Simonson's work extends the tradition and heritage of monochrome painting. Normally working in very specific situations, Simonson creates installation-like spaces with paintings which also act as walls or space dividers. Most of his paintings are composed of up to one hundred layers of transparent paint, taking many months to complete.

Simonson showed a large installation at The Moderna Museet Stockholm in 2010.

b. 1974, lives and works in Malmo, Sweden.
