Daily Dose Pick: Kiki Smith

A prolific sculptor and printmaker, New York-based artist Kiki Smith is renowned for her feminist works that present the female form in vital ways.

Mining myths, fairy tales, stories of saints, and concepts of self as subject matter, Smith creates visual narratives that express the poetic nature of life, death, and regeneration. A master at manipulating materials — particularly ink, paper, bronze, and glass — she is seemingly without artistic limits.
