"John Simpkins' paintings evoke contemporary allegory with a stylistic approach rooted in American primitivism and folkloric traditions. He often employs subject matter that is both dreamlike and prophetic." - Eric Nord, Leon Gallery, Denver, Colorado
John currently paints in an old stone schoolhouse in the ghost town of Andrews, Oregon, at the edge of Steens Mountain and the Alvord Desert.
