Lorna Simpson, “Darkening”
Time Out says
Sublime meets sublimation in these views of the arctic, rendered in deep shades of blues, grays and blacks to depict vast stretches of ice evaporating or melting into abstraction. Narrow strips of texts hover over large compositional blends of silkscreen imagery and allover, atmospheric veils of paint to conjure a beautiful devastation that seems to exist only in memory. This show is the artist’s first with the gallery.
