Words and Pictures

The merging of typography and photography can be seen in the work of Lorna Simpson. Lorna is a photographer whose work is represented in the current BC gallery show called Color(ing) Within the Lines: Graphic Works by African American Artists. Lorna Simpson first became well-known in the mid-1980s for her large-scale photograph and text works that confront and challenge narrow, conventional views of gender, identity, culture, history and memory.  Here are a few of her photographic works that are not shown in the gallery. Make sure to see the show!
