Laurie Simmons Exhibition Opens in March at Jewish MuseumLaurie Simmons Exhibition Opens in March at Jewish Museum
December 15, 2014

The Jewish Museum will present a series of recent photographs by artist Laurie Simmons, on view from March 13 to August 9, 2015. The seven new works in Laurie Simmons: How We See draw upon the 'Doll Girls' community, women who alter themselves to look like Barbie, baby dolls, and Japanese Anime characters through make-up, dress, and even cosmetic surgery. Simmons' images call to mind high school portraits, featuring fashion models posed in front of a curtained backdrop, cropped from the shoulders up. Prismatic lighting and small, surprising details in the models' clothing lends these otherwise banal images a psychedelic effect, which is exaggerated by each girl's preternaturally large, sparkling eyes. They stare out at the viewer with an uncanny, alien gaze, created by lavishly painting eyes onto the models' closed eyelids-a technique drawn from the 'Doll Girls' themselves. (more...)
