George Smith Furniture

GEORGE SMITH (USA, 1970–2016)

George Smith was born in Buffalo, New York. He received a BFA in sculpture from the San Francisco Art Institute in 1969. In 1972, he received an MA in sculpture from Hunter College, New York, where the artist worked with sculptor Tony Smith. Additionally, Smith met and studied under curator and arts advocate James Harithas, who at that time was a professor of art history. Since then, Harithas became one of Smith’s most significant supporters. 

Returning to Buffalo after college, Smith accepted an appointment in the art department at the University of Buffalo, where he taught sculpture for nine years. In 1981, Smith moved to Houston and was appointed professor of sculpture at Rice University, retiring in 2010. He is known for his steel sculpture and oil on paper works, which refers to the Dogon aesthetic and the expressive power of African geometry. For 40 years, he created works in metal, steel and paper that evoke a powerful and spiritual quality, grounded in the very essence of the material itself. Smith’s use of steel references the Buffalo Steel Industry, where his father worked in a local mill.
