About Shinique Smith
Shinique Smith composes her sculptures and installations from found objects and second-hand clothing tied together to form large cubes, bundles, and dense assemblages. Her creations reference a wide array of cultural and art historical themes, from Color Field Painting and other formal movements via the exuberantly colored clothing, to latent commentaries on recycling, materialism, and urban poverty. Her apparently spontaneous, cursive and looping paintings that accompany some of her installations at once point to graffiti and Eastern calligraphic traditions.
