Laurie Simmons was one of the first contemporary American artists to construct elaborate miniature sets for her photographs. After working as a freelance photographer for a dollhouse company, Simmons began collecting antique dolls and other toys, turning her camera on them as a means of reflecting contemporary culture. Surreal and slightly unsettling, these voyeuristic photographs of dolls and dummies shot in domestic settings raise questions about desire, happiness, and popular culture, particularly within the context of post-war America.

This exceptional work is a rare large-scale piece by Simmons and is from a sold out edition of 5. Don't miss the chance to bid on Lying Perfume Bottle (Lavender) by Laurie Simmons, now through Thursday, October 20 on artnet Auctions.
