About This Event

Expanding her critically admired Ice series, Simpson's new paintings allure viewers with layers of paradoxes, threading dichotomies of figuration and abstraction, past and present, destruction and creation. Collages on view continue the artist's ongoing exploration of the medium through her appropriation and reimagining of imagery from vintage issues of Ebony and Jet magazines, which have been integral sources for Simpson over the last decade. The new works on view reveal the ways in which Simpson's multidisciplinary, multivalent practice uniquely deploys metaphor, metonymy, and formal prowess to offer a powerful response to the daily experience of American life now.\ \ ‘Everrrything' will also debut new sculptural works, both indoors and outdoors, that further invite viewers into the intricacies of Simpson's vision.\ \ In 2019, Simpson was awarded the esteemed J.

United by her long-established visual vocabulary of found imagery and poetic juxtapositions, the sculptures, paintings, collages, and installation works on view break new ground in Simpson's thirty-plus year career, and clearly affirm her stature as one of the most dynamic artists working today.\ \ Featuring work made over the course of the past year, the exhibition continues Simpson's exploration of the nature of representation, identity, gender, race, and history through her appropriation of photo booth snapshots, vintage magazine advertisements, celestial maps, and images from scientific textbooks.
