Join us for a virtual talk exclusively for CAS members featuring artist Rose B. Simpson, who will discuss her practice. Her work will also be featured in the CMA’s fall 2021 exhibition Picturing Motherhood Now.
Rose B. Simpson is a mixed-media artist whose work addresses the emotional and existential impacts of our collective humanity. Her work revolves around the figure as proxy—from matriarchal or androgynous ceramic to attire to performance and custom cars—the insertion of self into a hyper-presence manifests an empathic ease. Simpson comes from a tribe famous for the ceramics its women have produced since the 6th century. An apprentice to her mother, an acclaimed native artist and cultural preservationist, Simpson grew up expressing herself in three-dimensions. After three university degrees, including a MFAs in ceramics from the Rhode Island School of Design and in creative nonfiction from the Institute of American Indian Arts, Simpson continues to inspire her practice from her studio and carshop in northern New Mexico. A bold innovator, Simpson combines her inherited tribal belief systems with high art concepts and apocalyptic science-fiction forms.
