Lorna Simpson Collages Summary

Lorna Simpson Collages by Lorna Simpson

"Black women's heads of hair are galaxies unto themselves, solar systems, moonscapes, volcanic interiors." -Elizabeth Alexander, from the Introduction

Using advertising photographs of black women (and men) drawn from vintage issues of Ebony and Jet magazines, the exquisite and thought-provoking collages of world-renowned artist Lorna Simpson explore the richly nuanced language of hair. Surreal coiffures made from colorful ink washes, striking geological formations from old textbooks, and other unexpected forms and objects adorn the models to mesmerizingly beautiful effect.

Featuring 160 artworks, an artist's statement, and an introduction by poet, author, and scholar Elizabeth Alexander, this volume celebrates the irresistible power of Simpson's visual vernacular.

Lorna Simpson Collages Reviews
