Revelatory stories told on canvas. Dreamlike constructions that are paintings, that are collages, that are assemblages, that are something indefinable, each a story of how we live.
Nancy Willis Smith seeks answers to questions, questions sometimes only seldom asked. She draws on a unique imagination that took root in the Midwest, flourished in the Middle East and now thrives in New York City.
As in life, you will never know what obscure object or uncanny image will find its way into a Smith construction. But it will be a chapter in a story that will haunt you far beyond the wall on which it hangs.
