Simone Leigh Bio

About The Artist

Simone Leigh is a sculptor whose work synthesizes traditional African pottery techniques with contemporary influences, subverting the Western notion that "high art" excludes craft. Commanding and curvaceous, her ceramic sculptures frequently reference the female body and are informed by her interest in African art, ethnographic research, and feminism. Leigh also works in video and installation art and emphasizes the conceptual as well as the physical process of making art.
