[Simpson's] serial portraits of women offer up a ripe extension of her career-long consideration of how identity is endlessly performed and transformed. [...] The images and essays in the handsome accompanying catalogue are a testament to the connections, departures, and complexity of Simpson's recent output. —Lauren O'Neill-Butler
The images and essays in the handsome accompanying catalogue are a testament to the connections, departures, and complexity of Simpson's recent output. Throughout the book we see that while Simpson finds new possibilities in drawing, she also nods, sometimes quite slyly, to deep-set traditions. As MoMA curator Connie Butler aptly notes in her essay, " The intimacy of the paper she chooses, consistently the 8 1/2x11 sheet of the notebook or sketchpad, is a scale close to photography's ancient history as well.
