I remember seeing some of Rebecca Fin Simonetti’s paintings in a friend’s room a few weeks ago and thinking they were really amazing. I was really glad someone was doing straight-up portraiture.

The other night, Simonetti had a small solo show, Are They a Threat, open upstairs from me at the Penthouse Space, and I was quite impressed by her almost graphic novel-inspired, moody drawings and paintings of female figures hanging out with goats or staring back at viewers with tired eyes as if they were displaying the psychic and physical wounds inflicted on them by the world.
