Kiki Smith Art

American, b. 1954
Born in Germany in 1954, the daughter of minimalist sculptor Tony Smith, Kiki Smith was raised in the United States and has earned international status as one of the most significant artists of her time. She was chiefly influenced by Louise Bourgeois, Eva Hesse and Lee Bontecou. While she is best known for her often dissected, anatomical sculptures, she has also produced a body of innovative printed art. Some of the major themes that Smith explores in her printed works include physiology, self-portraiture, nature, and female iconography. While her work in both mediums share a common psychological quality, she advances beyond the strict biological emphasis in her sculpture by including images such as snowflakes and butterflies in her prints. Smith’s work has been featured at five Venice Biennales and she has had several major solo museum shows.Smith’s work is in several major museum collections, including the Museum of Modern Art, New York; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles. She is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. In 2017, she was made an Honorary Royal Academician by the Royal Academy of Arts, London. In 2000 she was awarded the Skowhegan Medal for Sculpture and in 2009 the Edward MacDowell Medal. She also received the 2010 Nelson A. Rockefeller Award, Purchase College School of the Arts; the 2013 U.S. Department of State Medal of Arts, conferred by Hillary Clinton; and the 2016 Lifetime Achievement Award from the International Sculpture Center, to name just a few. Smith is an adjunct professor at NYU and Columbia University and lives and works in New York.

Kiki Smith "Noon 2007" Engraving Portrait Musician Ryan Bingham
By Kiki Smith
Located in Detroit, MI
" Noon 2007" Portrait of Musician Ryan Bingham engraving by Kiki Smith of a young man looking directly at the viewer. His look is not one of challenge, but more of a questioning nature. It is numbered on verso 28/33, and dated 2007. Kiki Smith (1954 - ) is a West German-born American artist. Her work encompasses many themes: sex, birth, regeneration and death along with personal investigation of her life and those of her family. Her figurative work of the late 1980s and early 1990s confronted subjects such as AIDS and gender. Her recent works have depicted the human condition in relationship to nature. Smith lives and works in New York City and the Hudson Valley, New York State. Her father was sculpture artist, Tony Smith and her mother was actress and opera singer Jane Lawrence. Although Kiki's work takes a very different form than that of her parents, early exposure to her father's process of making geometric sculptures allowed her to experience formal craftsmanship firsthand. Smith was enrolled at Hartford Art School in Connecticut for eighteen months from 1974 to 1975, then moved to New York City in 1976 and joined Collaborative Projects (Colab), an artist collective. The influence of this radical group's use of unconventional materials can be in seen in her work. For a short time in 1984, she studied to be an emergency medical technician and sculpted body parts, and by 1990, she began to craft human figures. In addition to print making Kiki Smith has created in a number of different mediums such as film, sculpture, tapestries, books and the confines of commissions. She experimented in a wide range of printmaking processes. Some of her earliest print works were screen-printed dresses, scarves and shirts, often with images of body parts. In association with Colab, Smith printed an array of posters in the early 1980s containing political statements or announcing Colab events. In 1988 she created "All Souls”, a fifteen-foot screen-print work featuring repetitive images of a fetus, an image Smith found in a Japanese anatomy book...
