DJ Simpson (1966)


DJ Simpson takes a sculptural approach to drawing. He has said of his work that it is like ‘drawing with electricity’. He uses an electric router to gouge marks into the birch plywood or formica laminate supports, to create a relief surface articulated by abstract lines and forms. Mundane material is revealed for what it is and transformed by a process of ‘drawing’ into something fascinating and quite beautiful. He was featured in the MIMA, Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art exhibition Draw. Conversations around the Legacy of Drawing, January-April 2007, an acknowledgement of his importance as an artist working with drawing.
