Laurie Simmons Woman/Purple Dress/Kitchen from the series Interiors 1976-77

  • Not on view

Since the mid-1970s Simmons has constructed and photographed dollhouse scenes that reflect on and critique the culture of domesticity. "It's interesting for me that a picture can be so colorful and so bright and so vivacious and so lonely at the same time," she has said. "Where is the rest of the world, where are the other people, where's the rest of the family?"
