DJ’s ‘painting’ displays an innovative, sculptural approach. Rather than applying paint on canvas, he uses an electric router to gouge marks into the birch plywood or Formika supports, creating imprints of swirling abstract lines and forms. He then coats the remainder of the plywood with a backdrop of enamel paints and laminates.

Simpson was also commissioned by Contemporary Art Society Consultancy to create a major wall-based work on a building that bordered the Olympic Park in east London in 2010.
