Since 2013, J. Eric Simpson has staged four solo exhibitions where he cross-pollinates his interests of philosophy, religion, and consumerism in the United States. By seeing similarities in these topics, he wonders how these social structures shape human behavior and the ideologies we construct about the world around us.
In the fall of 2014 he attended Land Arts of the American West at Texas Tech University with architect Chris Taylor. Simpson’s artwork has been published in the 2014 edition of Harbinger, Student Journal of Literature and Art and the Louise Hopkins Underwood Center for the Arts: The Little Black Book in 2011. Simpson received his BFA in Studio Art from Texas Tech University in May 2013; he will begin graduate studies toward an MFA in Studio Art at the University at Buffalo in NY during fall 2015.
