Comments/Context: Laurie Simmons' new photographs are her latest step in a logical progression in scale that began on a table top decades ago and has now reached full-sized. With the help of a highly realistic, human-scaled sex doll (actually two), she has evolved away from the sparkling irony and wit of the miniatures, ventriloquist's dolls, objects on legs, and deftly arranged color-coordinated rooms of her earlier projects, moving closer to "reality" than ever before.
