Sea Scapes: Stephanie Simmons

From “Sea Scapes”
14 x 20 inches

Artist, Writer, Curator, Critic, Stephanie Simmons created these photographs and paintings -posted them on Wooloo (probably years ago!), and like postcards buried in the desk drawer have resurfaced…

Simmon’s resume reads like the end credits of major motion film: panels, awards and bibliography are steeped in accolades.  What interests me here is when a curator/critic also makes art like this, they are admitting to the world that they believe in “truth” and “beauty” as well as history.

If I were lucky enough to know her personally she would probably send me a sweet but curt email, to please take these images off the blog- and, “how did I ever come across them anyway?”  Or perhaps they were left on the internet as a friendly peace treaty from across the fence.
