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 amazing¬†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.
