J. E. Simpson is an artist at the intersection of writing and sculpting. Working with fallen and found tree trunks and branches, he blankets their wooden surfaces with text, building narratives using automatic free flowing and collage writing processes.

An exhibition exploring automatic writing, dreaming, perception, déjà vu, memory, desire, existentialism, ontology and phenomenology. He is informed by a broad spectrum of writing, ranging from contemporary literature and poetry, to the origins of mark-making and expression. From the caves of Lascaux to hieroglyphs, from cuneiform tablets to Ipad tablets, from smoke signals to ones and zeroes. Our current ‘electric world’ as referred to by McLuhan, has its genesis in the development of phonetic alphabets, and later by way of the Gutenberg press.
