Simon Max Bannister has been consistently creating sculptural artworks that live in the outdoors. Be it earth, stone, leaf, water, light, shadow and even plastic, he grasps the energy and moulds it into a necessary and intriguing artistic dialogue. It is ultimately the creative processes of nature that inspire his creative endeavours. He has participated in events such as Site_Specific, Afrika Burns, Infecting the City and the National Arts Festival. While keeping a diversity in materials, his style is unique and his passionate creativity is in tune with the climate of our challenging times. He is currently based at Londolozi Game Reserve as artist in residence.
