Ashleigh Wadman from Cult GC had a chat with Simon Degroot about his current online exhibition Hard Graphics at SGAR. Ashleigh is an arts writer, curator, researcher, and dedicated advocate for the arts. Her interview offers generous insight into Simon’s practice whilst contributing to the academic dialogue that supports it.

“Through his inventive painterly language Degroot interrogates existing images: disassembling, reassembling, abstracting and fragmenting to create new works. His exploration of two-dimensional representations of space recall flat screen technologies and incorporate formal devices employed by these technologies to represent space in contemporary painting.”     Ashleigh Wadman
