Vollis Simpson

From the American Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore to the windows of Bergdorf Goodman in Manhattan, folk artist Vollis Simpson’s joyful whirligig and windmill pieces have captivated the imagination of artists and the public alike. In the 1970s, Simpson began transforming spare machinery, appliances, bicycles, road signage and scrap metal into energetic oversized sculptures that come alive with the wind. Meticulously engineered from overlooked materials, his pieces transcend their origin with whimsy, wonder and unexpected beauty.
