About: Indirect Response is an exhibition of new works by Simon Degroot exploring a translation of image details in abstraction. This exhibition considers how an abstract translation of architectural shapes can maintain a line of reference as they are painted and repeated in physical space. In particular, how a strategy of translation can be used to build and compose while simultaneously acknowledging the structures of the past.
Simon Degroot is a PhD candidate at the Queensland College of Art.
