Simon Foxall
Creative Producer 
Asti, Italy
Fine artist & filmmaker Simon Foxall harnesses messy, spontaneous moments of creativity to playfully parody patriarchal assumptions on femininity, sexuality and the gendered gaze. 
Simon trained in Fine Art Painting at University of Brighton (2003-06, BA Hons), and 
Royal College of Art, London (2010 - 2012, MA).
Simon's film work explores Nietzschean ideas that draw on feminist/queer readings of sci-fi as a triumph of the feminine-coded natural/supernatural over masculine-coded culture/tech.

His paintings operate as a kind of montage, a means to develop parasitic languages; ones which depend not on being 'first', but on retaining a ghost of pre-existing context and currency. They rely on appropriating, playing with the mechanics of meaning and myth-making, significance and hierarchy, asking questions of the parameters of history, sincerity, taste, reality, individuality and queerness
