Simon Periton

Known for his intricate doily-like creations, Simon Periton's work encompasses painting, sculpture and installation, with influences as diverse as punk, cinema, and the occult. In his work for the new Crossrail Western and Eastern ticket halls in Farringdon station, he uses intricate patterns that cascade down the walls and glazing of the ticket halls, echoing the dynamism of the busy station.

"The work will be experienced in glimpses, and that's where a public artwork is different to putting a piece in a gallery… it will be observed for smaller amounts of time but more regularly, so it's a completely different viewing experience." Simon Periton

Periton's work for Selfridges is inspired by the poem 'The Masque of Anarchy' by Percy Bysshe Shelley (1819). The window features two large leaf sculptures ('Mosstrooper' and 'Outdoor Miner') gazing silently out at the viewer from a moss-laden forest; a polished copper owl ('The Lookout') watches from the side lines while a series of painted glass upstarts ('Sir Punks') sprout up from the ground.
