‘Simnett’s parasitic prowess implant[s] something unnameable but visceral in her viewers.’
— Lucea Spinelli, Millennium Film Journal, 2020

‘Simnett’s incisive work traps you in a frenzied and heightened state: your pulse is racing and your skin is crawling and you are cripplingly aware of the delicate bones in your nose and the highways of the veins in the back of your knees.’
— Alison Green, Flaunt, 2018

‘So hypnotic, this British artist’s work palpates sinister tissues inside the body that few others can touch. […] Brooding on girlhood and its traumas, she operates with the creepy elegance of Narnia’s White Witch.’
— Charlie Fox, Frieze, Dec 2016
