James Cohan is delighted to announce the representation of Chicago-based artist Diane Simpson. The artist will have her debut solo exhibition with the gallery on February 15, 2024. Simpson is represented in collaboration with Corbett vs. Dempsey, Chicago and Herald St, London.
For over four decades, Diane Simpson has created rigorously constructed sculptures originating from clothing, furniture, utilitarian objects, and architectural sources. Attentive to the formal qualities of these vernacular references, Simpson playfully oscillates between two and three dimensional space by translating her subjects to schematic drawings and then, using the same tricks of pictorial illusion, transforming them back into actual space. The results are curiously flattened three dimensional versions of familiar objects rendered in a wide range of materials, from linoleum to perforated metal.
