Sculptor and artist Simeon Nelson showcases his intricately beautiful installation in an exhibition entitled Systems of Romance.

These featured pieces are some of his many, which highlights his ongoing infatuation with revealing the importance of space through artistic intervention. His pieces, many of which are ornately decorated and intricately designed, are geometric pieces placed within contemporary and distilled settings. The industrial material and contemporary setting is interestingly contrasted with the romantic and flowery embellishment of the design itself. These pieces were created as part of KickArts, which collaborated with Ryan Renshaw Gallery and Cook University in Australia. Kickarts, which is a coveted contemporary art organization in Queensland, is primarily seeking to assist the promotion of contemporary art forms and culture in the area.

Artist Simeon Nelson who is also a member of this organization, dedicated his exhibition to "Monia Brizzi in gratitude for her transformative effect on his thinking and his life."
