Also this semester we have the artist Simon Le Ruez coming in to give an artists talk. Simon was born in Jersey CI and now lives and makes work in Sheffield and Berlin. He works across various media though more specifically is known as a sculptor and installation artist.
He has exhibited internationally widely in solo and group exhibitions in The Netherlands, Mexico, Russia, France, Iceland, Germany, England, and the USA and been the recipient of many awards.
In recent years, in addition to his individual practice, he has made work collaboratively with fellow artists most notably the artist Maud Haya Baviera. His third solo exhibition with Vane Gallery, UK ‘The other side of you and me’ opened in April 2015. In 2010 Le Ruez was selected to undertake an eight-month artist residency on the prestigious international studio programme at Künstlerhaus Bethanien in Berlin. The residency culminated with a solo exhibition across three gallery spaces and served to affirm his creative and personal relationship with the German city.
