Shangri-less: Simon Mee Artworks from 2004-2014


Simon Mee is an important mid-career artist who draws inspiration from every day surroundings, art history and the news. He pushes, pulls and prods at life in all its messiness and humour through the use of art history and its iconography. The book shows some of his well known art from the Suburban Suite series through to his Folly inspired works. To help understand the significance of his work and three writers - Eliza Gluckman, Jane O’Neill and Dr Michael Vale. These writers provide three different perspectives, a broader international conext (Eliza Gluckman), a specific theoretical understanding (Dr Michael Vale) and a personal aspect (Jane O’Neill).
