FEATURED ARTIST

SHINIQUE SMITH

Shinique Smith takes physical stock of fibreculture and the possibilities of line. Working widely across painting, drawing, collage, video and installation, Smith creates ecosystems of cooperative corporality. Her works evoke embodied artifacts with consciences of genteel street smarts. Graffiti, secondhand finds and neo-tribalism interact with Abstract Expressionism, Minimalism and Japanese calligraphy to create playful alterations between supertext and subtext, evoking the textile weaves of Smith’s oft-used materials themselves. In an exhaustive effort to process and restore culture, Smith creates menageries that glom high and lowbrow expressions and bury them at the human center.
