Jane Simpson (Director) is an artist, curator and publisher.
Galerie Simpson (publishing) is a logical off-shoot to a career where solo shows have been accompanied by regular curatorial and collaborative projects, including kissingcousins (2007, Henry Moore Institute, Leeds) and Daddy Pop (2004, Anne Faggionato, London). Appointed as production manager for several high profile charities, she has created portfolios for Cubitt Artists and The House of Fairy Tales, making beautiful limited edition artworks with some of the world's leading artists including Rachel Whiteread, Gavin Turk, Sir Peter Blake, John Stezaker, Alex Katz, and Harland Miller.
As an artist, she is probably best known for sculptures made from rubber, ice and refrigeration units, she regularly shows around the world with recent solo shows in New York and London. Her work is held in leading collections and has been featured in seminal exhibitions including 'Sensation' - Highlights from the Saatchi Collection and 'Some Went Mad, Some Ran Away' curated by Damien Hirst.
She sees Galerie Simpson as a way to extend a creative conversation. Even her informal board of backers include artists, actors, designers and entrepreneurs. She has long nursed a secret passion for research, and this dialogue with the past has inspired her to create Galerie Simpson, with more than a nod to its adopted God Father, Marcel Duchamp.
