Gary Simmons Collection
Purple haze- Pigment print on paper.
Gary Simmons references film, architecture, and American popular culture in paintings and drawings that address race, class, and memory on both personal and collective levels. Using his technical feature of “erasure drawings” he creates  apocalyptic landscapes giving sensation of a lonely atmosphere, the letters have a ghostly appearance even as they're burning.
The burning and reflecting on the mirroring surface of this unreal background text of "Purple Haze" reinforces the mysterious quality of Simmons’ imagery while suggesting movement, the fleetingness of time, the pliability of history, and the inevitable fading of both cultural and personal memory.
