The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth presents FOCUS: Gary Simmons
Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth
3200 Darnell Street
Fort Worth, TX

Simmons is known for his "erasure" technique, which he began using in the early 1990s. Initially creating semi-erased works with chalk on blackboards, the artist has evolved to works on paper, paint on canvas, and murals that mimic smudged chalk. The resulting blurred and ghostly images often refer to intersections of pop culture, race, and class. History's subjective bent is also a strong theme within Simmons's work, and the simple nature of chalk lends itself to his artistic concerns-especially in its suggestion of basic communication, the human hand, education systems, and of easily erasable or altered information.
