Revelatory stories told on canvas. Dreamlike constructions that are paintings, that are collages, that are dioramas and sculptures, each holding a code waiting to be deciphered.
Nancy Willis Smith draws on a rich imagination that took root in the Midwest and Colorado, flourished in North Africa and the Middle East and now thrives in New York City.
As in dreams, you'll be surprised by the obscure objects, surreal juxtapositions and uncanny images that find their way into a Smith construction. But of one thing you can be certain: it will be a chapter in a story that will haunt you far beyond the wall on which it hangs.
