Kiki Smith: Each Day

Printmaking has been central and fundamental to Kiki Smith’s work for over 30 years and continues to be a source of discovery for her. Smith has been working primarily in print for the past year and has chosen to exhibit prints in Each Day at John Davis Gallery.

The works are made in a variety of different techniques, primarily etching, inspired by methods inspired by Kathan Brown’s book Magical Secrets about Aquatint and from making demo plates to teach printmaking at New York University and Columbia University. Also represented are color polymer, digital and relief printing techniques.

Smith has been privileged to work in some of the great printmaking studios across the United States. This exhibition includes prints published by Harlan & Weaver, LeRoy Neiman Center for Print Studies at Columbia University, Ribouli Digital, Savannah College of Art and Design, Universal Limited Art Editions, University of North Texas, and her own homemade efforts published under Thirteen Moons. Most of the images were inspired by the various living beings found in Catskill, New York.
