Shadow, mixed media collages

In this series of mixed media collages, Simms examines the phenomenon of the crowd in media representations. Her works incorporate fragments of images clipped from the newspapers or photographed directly from the television screen. Semi-transparent landscapes are painted directly over these images , creating a new imaginative space where concepts of the enduring and the ephemeral begin to haunt perceptions of the everyday.
