>   Mama, There’s Three Duppy on da porch
40"x30"
Oil and charcoal on canvas
2006

Danny Simmons’ abstract expressionist paintings and works on paper combine color, rhythm and line in an intricately vibrant style. Mama, There’s Three Duppy on da porch reveals an investigation into the use of negative space as a more expansive field for visual exclamations of color. In this painting, three strands of interlocking, colorful and saturated geometric forms float in a buttery yellow ground.
