Art of Domesticity

Kiki Smith has me wondering and wandering.  Speaking of wandering, have you read any Rebecca Solnit? "A Field Guide to Getting Lost" or "Wanderlust: A History of Walking"?  So lovely.  Required reading for my advanced studio classes.

So, back to Kiki Smith.  I am having difficulty as I re-enter studio life thinning the barrier between what I want to make (stuff) and what my over-educated brain tells me I should make (which is nothing, because what is there to SAY?!)  I think Kiki Smith makes stuff.  Ahhhh.
