Joe Simpson

I almost never talk about painting. At least not work that is not surreal, or collage like. Abstraction and realism bore me. But this work of Joe Simpson’s is something else. In some of these paintings the backgrounds are almost photographic. But the characters themselves look like paintings. As if it was human beings that were art. The second think is Joe Simpson did a series of works about Toronto. And I recognize the places. I’m not a nationalist and I find much about my city that is provincial but I am fond of it anyway.
