Art In America

Diane Simpson

at JTT,
170a Suffolk St

The six space-rearranging sculptures in Diane Simpson's show may knock you off balance. The Chicago-based artist, 78, crafts materials like wood, perforated metal, linoleum, leather or fabric into perspectivally twisted abstract forms. Their shapes are based on sources as varied as Ottoman art, a baseball catcher's bib, a 17th-century English court dress, and a Lucas Cranach painting, but the effect is uniformly dazzling.
