inspiration from Kiki Smith

Kiki Smith - Untitled - 1991

I'm intrigued by the way Smith works with figures, not only the three-dimensional forms like this one, but the ones that are merely paper skins.

There's something about the body as subject and referent that really grabs me.

Also, for me, there's something that keeps drawing me into self- work--in my writing, autobiographical work; and in my artwork (limited though it is at this point), self-portaiture. Iterating the self is tremendously fascinating to me.
