Gary Simmons

August 26, 2013

Gerry Simmons is an American artist, who uses icons and stereotypes of American popular culture, and creates works that address personal and collective experiences of race and class. He is best known for his “erasure drawings,” in which he draws in white chalk on slate-painted panels or walls, then smudges them with his hands – a technique that renders their imagery ghostly. Simmons is represented by Metro Pictures Gallery in New York City, and Simon Lee Gallery in London
