"Laurie Simmons: How We See"

Art, Photography

Time Out says

Widely known for her photographs of dolls, ventriloquist dummies and objects on legs, Laurie Simmons has been a fixture on the New York art scene since the mid-1970s, when she emerged as part of the Pictures Generation. This show presents new photos of fashion models rendered uncanny, thanks to the addition of eyes painted on their closed eyelids. You might say that Simmons is putting l'oeil into trompe l'oeil.
