You know when you stumble upon a new artist who's work makes you so happy you want to discover everything about them? Simone Shubuckjust did this for me. Her whimsical, layered, playful works are full of color and texture. Her work has been shown in numerous places from Taylor De Cordoba in L.A. to MoMA and is collected by Amanda Peet and Mario Testino.
"The works brim with a sense of playfulness and irreverence. A collage-like quality pervades, as seemingly incongruous colors and sudden shifts in style pile up on top of each other. Yet this exuberant variety somehow all coheres in forms redolent of an explosive bouquet. Underscoring this effect is the sudden appearance of green leaves and floral motifs, and it comes as no surprise to learn that Shubuck has worked for years as a florist." - MOSES DRIVER, W MAGAZINE
