Writer and translator Lizzie Lloyd explores Simpson’s interests in minimalism and early Flemish art, and brings him into orbit with other painters, from Zurbaran to Vermeer.


Playing on Simpson’s Squint series (as included in the current exhibition) Lloyd takes an oblique look at Simpson’s works as if peering through a squint hole to gain new perspectives on his relationship with art history.
