"Art is made by the hand of the artist, every stroke every chisel mark must belong to the artist."

Simon Raab works in a unique medium, he coined and patented as “Parleau”, whose etymology is French for 'through the water.' Multiple layers of colored polymers are applied to stainless steel and aluminum and then "crushed" or sculpted to give the appearance of an image just under the surface of water. The art is presented as either a wall-mounted painting with embedded frames, or as a freestanding volumetric sculpture. Raab's work is characterized by brilliant colors, figurative abstractions, and most often conveys some underlying philosophical message.

Parleau, is not unlike evolution, through adaptation's and failure's solemn dance we achieve our highest form in the cruelest of ways.

Parleau empowers me, I create for days and then in attempting to destroy my work I find its meaning and fullest expression.

Crushing Parleau, is destructive in part and creative in part, reality is only found by adapting to erosion.
