"From early on, very early on, I understood that art is not about what you say. It’s about these other things that you don’t say."
"The Instant Decorator (Pink and Green Bedroom/ Slumber Party, Really Crowded)" (2004)
"I realize how much more I’ve been influenced by older painting than I let on. There’s a formal compression of space, a juxtaposition of color (things that were in my mind that I never really accepted as influences, ways that I wanted my photographs to look), that I never really understood came so much from Matisse or Manet or even Picasso."
- Laurie Simmons
