Press Release

In Lillie Simpson’s paintings, a vibrant palette and free-flowing sense of composition create a world that the artist encapsulates in one word: “life.” That liveliness is expressed in the bold colors of the acrylic and oil paints which Simpson uses as well as in the varied textures and scenes she captures. In some of her works, color and form are employed in abstract patterns. Her ability to balance intense and subtle shades gives these paintings a three-dimensional quality and keeps the viewer’s eye in constant motion.

Simpson’s more recent paintings are focused on the life and culture of the Gullah people of South Carolina and Georgia. In these images, she mixes the formal qualities of her abstract works with an expressive depiction of the coastal landscape and its people. The sense of light and air, along with the strong sense of movement, result in engaging images that make the people Simpson depicts come vividly alive. “It’s as though those who had no voice now have one through faint whispers in my creations,” she says.
