Artist Statement

My work investigates the interwoven technologies of photography and identity. Stemming from my experience as a male-presenting queer person, my work is about the slippage that occurs when outward representations of body do not correlate to inner essences of identity. I use photography as the foundation of all my work because it parallels this tension, reflecting both surface appearances and inferred depths, while also problematizing the relationship between them.

Artist Bio

Simko's work has been exhibited at museums and galleries throughout the United States including The Vizcaya Museums and Gardens, The Walters Art Museum, Sanitary Tortilla Factory, and The Tyler School of Art at Temple University. His work was published in the University of Pittsburgh's 2018 issue of their cultural journal, "Contemporaneity," titled "Presenting Race: Institutional Contexts and Critiques." He is an active member of the SPE LGBTQ Caucus and is a contributor to Focal Critic, an online platform for educators, students, and photographers.

Simko holds an MFA in Photography from the University of New Mexico, and a BFA in Art History, Theory & Criticism from the Maryland Institute College of Art. He is currently an adjunct lecturer in Photography at the University of New Mexico.
