Sometimes, you see a piece of art and it becomes a must that you find out more about the artist. I saw this work (Black Curl, 2013) , and instantly had to do my research to find out about Lorna Simpson. She is an amazingĀ artist that focuses on views of African American women. The great thing is, I’d recently seen one of her older works at the Walker Art Center during a random summer vacation to Minnesota and her piece was one of my favorites, but I’m horrible at remembering names. Thank you internet for re-discovery. You can check out some more of her work via her profile on Artsy.
