Kiki Smith, ‘Europa’, Photogravure, 2000-2006

Estimated Price: $3,000 - $5,000

Description: Dimensional 4-color photogravure with lithograph text on Japan paperUSA, 2000-2006Kiki Smith (b. 1954) – American sculptor and printmakerSigned and dated in pencil, numbered '11/25' Full marginsDimensions: 21 x 29 ¼ in. (53.3 x 74.3 cm.)Very good conditionEstimate $3,000-$5,000In a prime example of the artist’s innovative printmaking techniques, Europais a delicate and thought-provoking work. Often exploring the natural and mythical worlds, Kiki Smith uses text, materials and composition to confront the viewer with a though-provoking statement. Europa – one of Jupiter’s moon – was discovered by Galileo in 1610 and features dark streaks across its surface, whose texture is mimicked by Smith. With the invocation of “flesh”, the duplicated moon takes on a decidedly feminine anthropomorphism. Kiki Smith (American, b. 1954)Kiki Smith is a leading contemporary artist with a career spanning more than three decades. Known primarily for her sculpture and works on paper, Smith is a wildly experimental and innovative printmaker. She is constantly pushing the boundaries in the field in all areas, including style, technique, and imagery. Her work addresses feminist, philosophical, social, sexual, and political aspects of human nature, employing non-traditional materials. Her early work, transgressive in nature, dealt with mortality and decay, while her more recent work explores the natural world, portraiture, fairy tales, and myths. Smith’s work is in numerous prominent museum collections, including the Museum of Modern Art, New York; Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles. Smith lives and works in New York City. ConditionIn overall good condition. Shipping costs excl. statutory VAT and plus 2,5% (+VAT) shipping insurance.
