In the 1940’s and beginning of the 50’s, Simon painted figurative scenes from the kibbutz in which he lived. After moving to Tel-Aviv in 1953, parallel to the “New Horizon” movement, the process of abstraction led him to a style that was named “Vegetative abstract”. Although figurative elements can be identified, they tend to be abstract symbols of images. The origin of abstract is through vegetative elements.
