I know we’re deep into a week of gift wrap related posts (there’s one more later today!), but I didn’t want to skip Print of the Week – it’s one of my favorite weekly traditions here on the blog!
I’ve been a fan of Kiki Smith’s work for a long time, but I am always surprised by how prolific an artist she is. The two etchings above, from a series of handcolored etchings she made called “Touch,” are new to me. I love the fine detail in Smith’s work, it’s easy to imagine her laboring over prints such as these.
Her drawings are similarly detailed and lush, like this one titled, “Deer Things.” I love how magical and delicate her work feels, and the contrast between that softness, and her strong feminist views that are often on display in her work.
