Simon Attwooll (b.1985) is interested in the intersection between new and old technologies and what information becomes lost or overlooked in either. Slipping between mediums: not quite painting, or printmaking, nor object-based practice, Attwooll manoeuvres between analogue, digital and human modes using found photographs as readymades.

In a time when photography often only exists in a digitised form Attwooll encourages an alternative method of engagement. Attwooll’s works explore the nuances in our relationship to them and encourage us to re-examine our relationship to the photographic image and object.

Selected recent shows include: Windows, SPA_CE Gallery, Napier, (Upcoming) 2021; View Finders, Olga Gallery, Dunedin, NZ, 2021; |NOTFAIR|, Melbourne, Australia, 2021; Ton tonton tond ton thon, {Suite} Gallery, Wellington, NZ, 2020; Sometimes a Bad Experience is Better Than a Long Explanation, {Suite} Gallery, Wellington, NZ, 2019.

Currently living and working in Wellington New Zealand, Attwooll has shown nationally and internationally and has works held in both public and private collections.
