(STILLWATER, Oklahoma / August 8, 2017) Heralded as one of the most distinctive voices of her generation, Kiki Smith has been crafting captivating, challenging art for more than 35 years – from her early wax and plaster female figures to colorful wall-size tapestries of women and animals in nature. Birth, death, and regeneration are recurring themes – the human condition from its most vulnerable to its most enduring. Although Smith has ventured into an array of mediums, the one material she has most consistently engaged is paper, manipulating it for drawings, prints, and even sculpture.
Highlighting the artist’s passion for paper, this exhibition explores Kiki Smith’s perspective on the human body, and the female form in particular, a figure that has remained the foundation of her art.
Curated by Wendy Weitman, this is the third in our New York Project, a series of exhibitions bringing the work of major New York artists to Oklahoma.
