DOCTOR FOURQUET 12, ES – 28012 MADRID

For over a decade now, British artist DJ Simpson has built up a singular and consistent corpus of work where the pictorial process is the main focus of his investigations. Through a technique called ‘routing’, he removes layers of materials previously singled out and painstakingly superimposed to reveal traces of aluminium, plywood and Plexiglas. With this new group of works now on show at the Helga de Alvear Gallery, DJ Simpson initiates a new phase in his artistic enquiry. Thin folded aluminium sheets are covered with powder paint or epoxy of the kind generally used on car bodies. This allows him to reflect on the qualities and behaviour of materials and engage in a dialogue with modern art.
