"This Brooklyn artist’s sensual, militaristic sculptures employ early African ceramic techniques to thoroughly postmodern ends."
Quinn Latimer
Introducing Simone Leigh
Modern Painters
November 2008

"...he’s a poet as much as an artist.
So is Simone Leigh in sculptures that seem to pose metaphors without narrowly defining them. In “Head Piece (Black),” an all but featureless gun-metal-gray bust blossoms into an Afro of white and black ceramic roses. “Brooch (Black),” bristling with ceramic bananas held in place by steel clamps, looks like a cross between a giant flower and a thresher.
Holland Cotter, The New York Times, September 24, 2010
