Paul Simmons: Clear Spot
August 27 - October 21
One Main Street
Brooklyn, NY 11201 United States
Paul Simmons is a multi-media, Brooklyn, NY based artist. Simmons will exhibit a site-specific installation for Main Window on view from August 27th through October 21st, 2019.
In his work, Simmons deconstructs the formal elements of language and reinterprets them through a process of layering, highlighting their own history of making. Like a palimpsest, the underlying marks on the surface yield clues to a previous function, here incorporated into a larger compositional whole. The image alludes to a variety of references — topographical maps, figural or sculptural forms, contemporary hairstyles — but ultimately bears little resemblance to anything specific instead presenting how one could construct its recollection through an ontological index of shapes, lines, colors and textures.
