    Part of a series Cindy Sherman produced called “Cover Girls,” the triptych shows the original Jerry Hall [Vogue] cover in black-and-white, one Sherman mock-up posed exactly like the model, and another of Sherman giving a playful wink. Sherman also created fake covers for Redbook, Family Circle, Mademoiselle, and Cosmopolitan.

    Currently showing at Toronto’s Copper Cole Gallery is a two person exhibition ‘Destroyer’ featuring new works from artists Andrew Schoultz and Richard Colman. This pairing illuminates the similarities between the two artists’ graphic line works and bold colors, as well as their preoccupations with social elements and woodland landscapes. Featuring dark horses, grim reapers and a psychedelic color palette the exhibition explores a convergence of death, sexuality and the beauty of nature heralded under the dark exhibition title.

    I’m the type who’d be happy not going anywhere as long as I was sure I knew exactly what was happening at the places I wasn’t going to. I’m the type who’d like to sit home and watch every party that I’m invited to on a monitor in my bedroom.

Like Mother Like Daughter: Laurie Simmons Passes Reality-Bending Legacy to Girls Star
Apparently the apple did not fall far from the tree in Laurie Simmons’s family, her daughter Lena Dunham show Girls has become the new must-watch show HBO. And Simmons newest body of work The Love Doll has been very well-received. Wired Magazine’s Raw File has a great slideshow and interview up now.

Laurie Simmons’ daughter, Lena Dunham, has recently been thrown into the spotlight with the success of her new HBO series, Girls, but Simmons herself has been a well-known New York photographer for over 30 years. Both women seem to enjoy blurring fact and fiction, with viewers of Simmons’ work wondering if what they’re seeing is real or simulated, and viewers of Girls questioning how much of the show is from Dunham’s own biography.


So cool! See work by Laurie Simmons in our permanent collection here.
