Step into the Rhythm!

BETWEEN THE LINES, an installation in studio 308
I’m a lover of books. I love to look at them, to photograph them in sequences, to accumulate the images into large works and observe the abstract patterns made by their colored spines. I find myself seduced by the visual rhythms of the page ends of books.

Step into the Rhythm during the upcoming Fall Open Studios at STUDIO 308, 1890 Bryant Street Studios, San Francisco CA 94110.
Opening preview Friday October 25, 6-9 pm. Saturday October 26 and Sunday October 27, 11 am to 6pm.

A summer exhibition in San Francisco!

Avenue 12 Gallery presents URBAN RHYTHMS _ Simo Neri: Photo Mosaics _ June 26 – August 16, 2019
Every city has a particular color palette. Ordinary urban details that we take for granted enter our consciousness subliminally. Focusing on a few of the cities I have lived in, I have represented features that describe a sensory geography of place. Each work tells a story, and in so doing describes a very personal sense of owning the city.

American Spring 2018: Signs of the Times

Moved and inspired by the courage and passion of the young MSD survivors of the Valentine Day massacre in Parkland, FL
I photographed the signs at the March For Our Lives in San Francisco, and created compositions for a new silk scarf and bandana, to honor and share the message and spirit of this important, student-led initiative.

When you purchase a March For Our Lives scarf or bandana, a portion of proceeds will benefit the March For Our Lives Action Fund.

“AMERICAN SPRING” CAMPAIGN 2017

Inspired by the Women’s March on Washington, and by the clever, witty, irreverent signs crafted by the marchers

I created compositions for a silk scarf and a cotton pillow cover celebrating the message and spirit of the march.

When you purchase a scarf or a pillow cover from the American Spring collection, a portion of proceeds will go to Planned Parenthood.

DESIGN OF THE MONTH: MASKS in RED and WHITE

These amazing Korean masks were used in a variety of purposes…

…in war, ceremoniously to drive away evil spirits, and in the arts, especially in ritual dances and theater. The often horrifying or grotesque masks were used in shamanistic practices for their ability to evoke fear, and humor.

Limited edition prints, wall hangings, pillow covers, silk scarves, as well as silk and cotton shirts, are available upon request, or on our web boutique.

DESIGN OF THE MONTH: TREADING WATER

This work is about time suspended…

… the same way a body suspended in water must tread the water in order to stay afloat. The moving legs and the water’s refraction and diffraction combine to create an abstract rhythm.

Limited edition prints, wall hangings, pillow covers, silk scarves, as well as silk and cotton shirts, are available upon request, or on our web boutique.
