Kiki Smith by Helaine Posner

Book Description

Through her explorations of the human body and the natural world, Kiki Smith has confronted in her art the most urgent social and spiritual issues of our day. Direct and accessible, Smith's expressive art engages social and cultural issues in a sometimes viscerally disturbing way. In her recent work, Smith has extended these themes, incorporating rites of passage and cycles of life, death, and rebirth through an iconography of animal, human, and fairy tale imagery. Helaine Posner's monograph is a comprehensive survey of Smith's work in installation, sculpture, and graphic media.

Books By Author Helaine Posner

Louise Fishman by Helaine Posner Louise Fishman, Hardback (February 2016)

Lorna Simpson by Helaine Posner Lorna Simpson, Hardback (April 2006)

One of the leading African-American artists of her generation, Lorna Simpson first became well known in the mid-1980s with large-scale photographs examining racial and gender identity. The shadowy, foreboding atmosphere of these works suggests still images from film noir subjects, and they depict urban locales.
