Born in Italy, Simo Neri has lived in California, Paris, and New York, and has recently re-established her studio in San Francisco. Influenced by these different cultures, as well as by studies in art and philosophy, she has been combining photographic and painting techniques since 1978. Neri’s installations of large “photo curtains”, “photo kimonos”, and “photo falls”, are rhythmic and meditative in nature. Her recent work explores new printing techniques on silk, linen, and cotton canvas. Simo Neri’s work has been exhibited and collected in the United States, Europe, and Japan.
