  • Artist Bio

    Laurie Simmons

    American • 1949

    Laurie Simmons is an American photographer and filmmaker. Known for her curated domestic scenes using dolls and miniature objects, Simmons questions the truth behind photographic realism and the stereotypes of American culture. In her critically acclaimed series Walking Objects, Simmons offers commentary on how women are represented in popular media through a memorably surreal image. The artist emerged in the 1980s as a prominent member of the 'Pictures Generation' alongside Cindy Sherman and Louise Lawler. Today, Simmons' work is found in the collections of The Museum of Modern Art in New York, the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, among others.
