Simone Boon

est favourites from Otomys Contemporary

Simone Boon is a Dutch born artist who resides between Amsterdam and Hong Kong. Living between the east and west has brought to her attention the different ways in which people perceive the world around them; realising that preconceptions, as well as understanding or misunderstanding are intertwined with the inner paradigms embedded in each of us by the culture of our upbringing. Perception thus has become an important consideration in Boon’s work. Another interest that Boon explores is how life evolves over time, space and place. Always in transition, weaving and layering, the fragments of life leave a trace of fascinating patterns. Boon’s latest series explores such notions from a female perspective; presenting a philosophy of becoming.
