For Smith, paper is not only a base, but also a material that she uses for its inherent qualities.

Smith has used Nepalese paper, which is like rice paper and almost transparent, in several large pieces she has made in recent years.

Kiki Smith

Born in 1954, in Nuremberg (Germany)
Lives and works in New York (United States)

Since the early 1980s, Kiki Smith’s work has been establishing analogies between various techniques (drawing, sculpture, painting on glass) and living things. It is influenced by fantasy and mediaeval art, and responds with a certain virulence to its time.
