While preparing works for Salon 94’s booth at Frieze London, Lorna Simpson spoke with Eve Claxton for Net-A-Porter’s The Edit. The New York-born and -based artist discussed her personal style, go-to designers (Rick Owens, Zero + Maria Cornejo, Helmut Lang, and Jil Sander), and her recent works—mixed-media portraits of African-American women with gestural, bouffant-esque hairstyles painted in vibrant ink washes. Following Frieze, Simpson’s upcoming projects include a retrospective at the Haus der Kunst in Munich (opening Oct. 25), limited-edition prints for Lincoln Center’s Vera List Art Project and a talk at a TEDx event at the Met.
