Maximo Simon loves swimming in the city’s wild and pure river – the Aare. I learned various professions in social affaires, still working with humans. In the past I worked within the nature and learned a natural professional. As a widely traveled individualist, I benefit from other cultures, opinions and views. I’m an autodidact.
Career – the artistic approach
Maximo Simon likes the different haptic and sensual feelings of the materials and brings them together in a limited space to create a work. He tries to combine subtle color nuances in his work and he likes to work in a reduced way and selects material and color in a targeted manner. It is important to him that textures and colors mesh cleanly. As a result, his works are reduced and delicate. For him, abstract art means expressing impressions through emotional expression, ultimately creating new visual concepts. His work is also inspired by the Japanese motto “Wabi-Sabi”. It signifies the love for the imperfection, impermanence and irregularity of nature.
Wabi means to enjoy lonely stillness and austerity. Sabi means to show maturity and patina. These two components combine into a mindful concept that inspires me. In the end, it’s all about sheer simplicity. For example, I find a clay bowl that has an imprecise, non-round shape incredibly beautiful.
His works address the changes and fascination of nature and relate to environmental awareness. He tries to bring nature and its inspirations and interpretations into the living room. He pursues environmentally conscious approaches such as the series “Fire” and “Australian Desert Ground”, which refers to the drying up of the earth and the signal of bush fires. For him, nature has its own body language. Structures in his works are important to him. These show the fragility, but also the strength of life and the diversity of nature.

“Desert of Santa Maria No. 1” named after a portuguese island. The idea I got when I went in 2021 and 2022 to the Açores in Portugal. It’s a paradise on earth and an absolutely hidden gem. We traveled and visited 6 of the 9 island in the middle of nowhere in the Atlantic Ocean. We hiked through out the islands, enjoyed good food, views on a big volcano and the extraordinary hospitality of portuguese people. On Santa Maria we found a red and orange field full of sand who looked like the surface of mars. We walked in it and I soaked up the deep beauty of all the color shades. Back at home I created this artwork and dedicated the title to Santa Maria.
