Larry Simon takes his inspiration from seemingly everyday objects, surfaces and scenes to create composed narratives shrouded in a sense of the unknown: the Inner World residing in our subconscious—a place where we cannot fill in all the blanks.
As a photographic artist, he often works with a blend of sharp and soft focus, presenting his work in photo collage form or as digital prints.
A constant roamer, Larry Simon is based in Chicago. He is self-taught.
Influences: Gerhard Richter, Saul Leiter, Haruki Murakami, Alfred Brendel
