2017, tulle, organza and thread, 103 x 79cm

The curvilinear and organic shapes of Anerleigh Simms’ works mark moments in time for the artist through playful forms. Her works savour personal experiences and capture stages in her artistic practice, charting a course to the present.

Simms has been moving towards a more immediate and free-form practice over the past few years; pushing against the strictures of the planned effects of printmaking. Unorthodox experimentation is evident in her printed works, as Simms relishes the watery, varied dapplings of her aquatints and transgresses traditional categorisation by drawing directly in soft crayon onto her printed works. Her soft sculpture Soft Back, Coarse Hands continues this sense of immediacy and captures an intimate moment through the floating delicacy of tulle and organza. Knots and thread are emphasized to trace the making process. Direct contact is paramount here, as Simms renegotiates the boundaries of different mediums by bringing the hand of the artist to the fore.
