Drawing, Installation, Photography, Sculpture
Simon Scheuerle is a practicing artist and works as a fine arts lecturer at the ANU School of Art.
He creates objects, installations, photographs, drawings, paintings and videos.
Simon Scheuerle uses a wide variety of everyday materials and various sculptural techniques to produce his objects and installations. He takes photographs on the street of random detritus, and in his studio of toys and props. He draws pictures in pencil and ink and paints with acrylics. He films everything. He creates films using pre-existing and shot footage.
Practicing a form of aesthetic strong-arming, Simon engages the viewer through spectacle and intense materiality. His art is hilarious, disastrous, ironic and indulgent.
Simon Scheuerle is currently living and working in Canberra / Australia.
