Inspired by a life-long fascination of stone buildings, and drawing on skills learnt as an architectural stone carver, Simmonds’ work takes stone architecture, and particularly sacred architecture, as a central theme. Drawing on the formal language and philosophy of architecture  the work explores themes of positive and negative form, the significance of light and darkness and the relationship between nature and human endeavour.
