Troy Simmons at Context Art Fair 2016

SIMMONS-Perception Series- UTOPIA - 2016- concrete- acrylic- aluminum 24x36x3 inches
Miami Artist Troy Simmons has immersed himself in his latest work, 
exploring the evolution of urbanism and nature’s persistence to coexist. 
His massive, large-scale concrete canvases are a mix of aluminum, 
acrylic paints and raw concrete. Simmons will display his latest piece 
from his Perception Series- UTOPIA during  
Context/Art Miami Art Fair 2016.

Under the direction of JanKossen Contemporary Art Gallery in Basel,

 Switzerland, Simmons will showcase his work in Booth 206, 
Tuesday, Nov 29th through Sunday, Dec 4th.

Simmons work has been compared to the “Arte Povera genre” 

where the inclusion of simple, re-purposed material takes an integral 
part in the creation of the art. His pieces create a playful mix of hard
 and soft, revealing the hidden common ground between different 
entities and exposing the ideological perceptions of binary relationships.
