Simon Woolham graduated from Chelsea College of Art with an M.A. in 2000.
His work is concerned primarily with occupied spaces and the narratives that unfold in them, often made from simple materials and with seemingly modest aspirations. He is plays with the quotidian qualities that charge them with emotion. It is not that his works is personal or autobiographica that obscures their emotional content, as he says, it is the fact that they are irreducibly, irrevocably unsettling. These sites are the scenes of humiliation as well as innocent play, of rejection and failure as well as fantasy and adventure.
