Artist of the moment…photographer Laurie Simmons….

One of my favorite photographers is Laurie Simmons. Simmons was born in 1949 in Long Island, New York.

For her collegiate studies she attended the Tyler School of Art located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Early works were similar to her photographic works now as she focused on the interiors of houses.

I love her creative ideas that blend the super creative child in all of us with her creative genius. Her series of items with legs attached includes model houses, guns, and cameras.

Has won a fellowship from the Guggenheim and also the National Endowment for the Arts.

Listed in the Internet Movie Data Base as an actress, producer, and director.

price range information; Many works are priced between $2,000 to $10,000. Some cibachrome works reaching in the $60,000 range. A unique gelatin silver print can reach the low six figures.

Simmons is also renown for working with dolls.

A clip from the PBS series often recommended on this site, the Art21 series.

A great interview with a curator.

Having only seen the artist’s work via computer screen, I imagined the works to be photoshopped but they are in fact small replica doll houses. In this clip we visit Laurie Simmons as she creates some very small furniture sure to be called art!
