Renee Lee Smith's latest series of sculptures retain many of the expressive characteristics of her painting. Made in paper mache, and some cast in bronze, the elongated forms are densely textured and bear resemblance to ancient icons from a lost civilization. The sculptures are an evocation of female form. They recall Giacometti’s existential, alienated humans, while at the same time suggesting a stronger desire to see the body as a vessel of possibility and transcendence. Text by Derek Root.
Renee Lee Smith's 'Both Sides, Now" exhibition opens on Thursday, September 7 from 5-8pm and continues until September 30, 2017 a dual exhibition that includes the works of painter Sarah Delaney's "The Casual Effect' latest body of work.
