Description - Kiki Smith by Helaine Posner

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.
