Simon Cottrells work is represented by Gallery Funaki, Melbourne, Australia and Charon Kransen Arts, New York, USA.

"In recent work I am aiming to trigger various quiet yet resonant contradictions that blur our abilty to make clear sense of the things we see. There is both simplicity and complexity, static and growth, volume and lightness, randomness and order, monotone and dynamic, tension and calm, in the forms and structural details. Initially appearing quite austere, the more time we engage with each piece the less definitive they become.

If there is a possibility of a clear line between my work being perceived as one way or another, I will often try to sit on that line. Exactly where that line lies however all depends on the attentiveness of the viewer. When we are presented with forms that are evocative of something familiar yet ambiguous, our curiosity is triggered and our visual engagement is lengthened...  it is never clear, are we looking at small machines or floral bouquets?... monsters or clouds?... plants or animals?"
