Jason Sims is an Australian artist who works in the realm of perceptual art. Using the properties of light and reflection, he creates simple illusions of space in the form of contemporary sculpture, large-scale installation and public art. Blurring the lines between reality and illusion, Sims' captivating work defies notions of physical possibility.
Sims is most interested in producing work that serves as a vehicle to re-imagine the space encountered - to deconstruct perceived physical limitations - and facilitate a kind of meditative response allowing viewers to interpret the illusion of space created as reality. He particularly enjoys working with illusion for its ability to evoke the sublime and its power to interrogate our understanding of the world around us.
Since graduating with a Bachelor of Visual Arts (Honours) from the University of South Australia in 2006, Sims has exhibited across Australia, and in Hong Kong, the USA and Europe. His work is held in public and private collections around the world, and he is currently producing his third major public artwork in Adelaide, South Australia.
