Danny Simmons: From There to Here
was reviewed by art critic Benjamin Genocchio in The New York Times
this past week. Though critical of a few of the works, overall it is a positive review of the artist’s debut exhibition at Spanierman. Genocchio also remarked, “The paintings in this show, pulsing and occasionally brash, are very different from the usual polished but staid art that you see hanging in galleries in the Hamptons. They shake things up.” We are happy to be pushing the bounds of the East Hampton art community!
Totemic, mythic imagery abounds, giving the best of the paintings visual force and a disquieting strangeness. Whimsy is also prevalent, be it in the artist’s twisted looping lines or amped-up color schemes.
