+ Herald St

Simpson calls upon a particular vocabulary in her first solo show for Herald St: jabot, lambrequin, peplum, valance, pauldrons. These are both title and source material – referencing a circular process that sews together the works’ beginnings and ends. The artist begins with specific imagery of ceremonial and old-fashioned draperies; her fascination with peplums – originally a protective overskirt for men and women, now an ornamental frill – and window ‘dressing’ has developed over several groups of work over the last 10 years.
