CLOSING: Danny Simmon at Westwood Gallery

By WestWood Galleries

Closing: Danny Simmons, The Long and Short of It at Westwood Gallery

November 12, 2022

262 Bowery, New York, NY 10012

Tue – Sat, 10am – 6pm


WESTWOOD GALLERY NYC presents “Danny Simmons: The Long and Short of It,” a solo exhibition of paintings, textile assemblage, and works on paper by the Neo-African Abstract Expressionist. This is the artist’s first solo exhibition with the gallery and includes new artwork as well as historic work from 1990s-present. The exhibition is curated by James Cavello in keeping with the core gallery program. Danny Simmons is exclusively represented by Westwood Gallery NYC and the exhibition will be on view from September 10 – November 12, 2022.

Danny Simmons is a self-taught painter who focused on his art career from the late 1970s. His initial series of works were developed in 1992 with a strong interest in Surrealism, inspired by artists such as Wilfredo Lam, Norman Lewis, Cy Twombly, and Ouattara Watts. Through his natural inclination toward collecting and studying tribal and African art, Simmons began to see patterns in the markings and iconography. Although many of his early paintings and inspirations were figurative abstractions, Simmons organically transitioned his work to non-representational as he moved to incorporate his connection to the cultural signs and symbols of tribal artists and artisans and reappropriating African forms from Modernist history.
