Noisy in the Next Room, “Danny Simmons’ sole exhibition of new work, provides a dramatic and competing bridge between the past and now. His paintings operate on multiple levels of perception, employing commonplace practices of repetition and erasure, urging you to abandon the notion of up and down. Describing himself as a “neo-African Expressionist,” the New York Times recently started what some have long recognized, “there is a freshness to his abstract work.” His artwork enters into conversations with artists like Paul Klee, Cy Twombly, Wilfredo Lam and others. There is this awareness of the thing just beyond the door – a person, a place, a memory that makes its presence strongly felt, the exhibit takes us to that door and opening it, reveals the space where the rich forces of Mr. Simmons’ creative energies live. You are invited to join us on this voyage.
