Still presents itself as a nostalgic reference to the majesty of nineteenth-century American landscape painting and photography as epitomized in the work of Frederick Church or William Henry Jackson. Interrupting this bucolic serenity, however, is the printed text that draws the viewer right up to the work's surface. Almost before one realizes it, one's role of surveillance is made physically apparent by moving this distance from outside the pictorial space up to its surface. The viewer has intruded, undetected, into the site of these implied narratives. While giving little access to the details of this realm, Simpson does what she has done so well in her past work, which is to thrust the viewer into the role of the voyeur, thus underscoring one's relationship to the content of the work." -Sarah J. Rogers
