Salon 94 artist Lorna Simpson releases an almost 350-page compilation of her signature female (and sometimes male) portraits. Hand-drawn or cut out of magazines with water color hair, her work is beautiful and memorable. The portraits are accompanied by interview transcriptions and essays on Simpson’s life, personality and artistry. Browse the gallery for a preview of the book and get it online or at agnès b. starting this Monday, January 13. For information on Simpson’s book signing, also on Monday, go here. Also available on Amazon.
