Press Release

It is with great pride that we announce the addition of Kim Simonsson into the gallery. Our first show together, “Moss People,” will be on view from October 8th through the 28th at Jason Jacques Gallery. Born in 1974 in Helsinki, Finland, Simonsson uses traditional techniques to create sensitive and surreal painted ceramic sculptures. His sculptures combine innocent animal and child forms with a twist of violence and suspense to create a monumental physical presence. “Authority in its many forms fascinates me and in my works I want to reverse the common beliefs by making the weak powerful,” says Simonsson. This acclaimed young Finnish ceramic sculptor's work has already been collected by over 20 important museums and foundations. Beware: not for the boring or faint of heart.
