the king of windmills & whirl-i-gigs

windmills & whirl-i-gigs

Over the weekend, North Carolina artist Vollis Simpson passed away at the age of 94. Mr. Simpson created some amazing found materials whirl-i-gigs, which he installed in sort of a farm near his home close to Wilson, NC. A few years ago, shep. and I took a spur-of-the-moment Sunday drive down there, and Mr. Simpson was kind enough to show us his workshop and let us photograph his creations. You can read more about Vollis Simpson here, and some of my photos are below. His work was truly amazing.
