"The Savages came in their hundreds, war-worn and brutal, pouring over the barren landscape. She watched them from behind the barricade of pretty words. She was “harder to reach”, “distracted, but “available”. “She wanted flattery”. Apparently. But the words could not hide her for long. Their eyes were hidden behind masks of rips and tears. An army of broken humanoids. They had an easy mantra – “Savages, Silence Yourself” and they would hum it over and over again as they poured through the battle grounds. She wished she could see their eyes; search for some kind of humanity left. But it was futile. The Savages were here to stay and her hiding places were running out."

“Miss Simpson creates arcane iconography to redeem your soul from a recidivist consumer culture” C.C. O’Hanlon Anna Louise Simpson is a self-taught artist with a studio in Edinburgh. Anna Louise grew up watching vintage movies and drawing from fashion magazines and books. Drawing on influences such as Kippenberger and Rauschenberg, Anna Louise uses found items such as billposters and magazines to build up a textured mixed media surface, in order to explore themes of confused popular culture. Layering her work with power and fragility; tales of passion and desire are exposed. At times, these stories are gentle whispers, at other times, they are loud and brash graffiti. Fragmented portraits hidden in urban landscapes reveal an honesty and broken reality; a mixed up version of the popular culture that submerges us all. Exploring the rips of popular culture and society's vulnerability, Anna Louise produces images of dystopic fragility...’a keeper of fragile things’.
