Lorna Simpson: Contemporary Collage

From Black Curl to Cleopatra, Brooklyn-based artist Lorna Simpson creates thought-provoking works that explore African American women and Black hair. With original images and photos that she collects from flea markets and special Ebay finds, Simpson mixes the imagery with ink on paper to craft unique narratives that only we, the viewer, can truly fill in. Her collages integrate beautiful color relationships as well, with pieces featuring indigo and persimmon “hair”.
