SEE THE WORK OF DAVID SIMPSON

David Simpson (1928- )

"I want my paintings to create space: to find room. I want them to create space without taking it, and to be contemplative in the process. Hence their apparent simplicity and openness."
—David Simpson

American, born in Pasadena, CA.

David Simpson celebrated his 80th birthday this past year and he is working away with the fervor of a young man. Since his discovery of interference paint and since his retirement from the faculty of the University of Californian at Berkeley he has devoted himself to his great love PAINTING.

About fifteen years ago his work was discovered by Continental Europe's foremost collector of American art, Count Giuseppe Panza, who described his discovery accordingly, "I saw this artist's work for the first time in the Angles Gallery in Santa Monica. Various paintings had been hung on one wall they were well lit with natural light, and I could see at once the differences of the colors. I didn't even have to move in front of the pictures. It was something really amazing, something completely new. Here was something coming from another world and no longer of this earth. What an emotion."

This is a quotation from Count Panza's autobiography MEMORIES OF A COLLECTOR published in 2007 in English by Abbeville Press. To demonstrate his enthusiasm for this artist David Simpson's work is on the front and back cover of the book jacket. David Simpson's work is in major museums throughout the world including the Museum of Modern Art in New York. He was amongst fifteen artists exhibited at the MOMA in 1963 in one of Dorothy Miller's last exhibitions entitled "Americans".
