Sims, Agnes C. 1910-1990

Read Agnes Sims' Biography

Most of Sims paintings and sculptures were inspired by petroglyphs, but unlike her documentary drawings they never were literal copies.  Rather she adopted and adapted the two-dimensional representations of people and animal into an art that fit comfortably into the larger world of mid-century modernism.  She used simple, idiosyncratic figures to create her own symbolism, the original meanings of the ancient art being mostly lost to the past.
