British artist Simon Periton is known for his intricate paper cut-outs, and complex works on glass and sculpture. He draws inspiration and borrows imagery from diverse sources, including Punk, art history, the landscape, flora and fauna, occultism, politics and religion. Periton has also worked on a number of architectural interventions for the Home Office and Channel 4 amongst others, as well as works for the V&A, and Firstsite Colchester. He will talk about his practice and his new commission for Bristol.
