Most of Kiki Smith’s sculpture is figurative and implies a narrative. She creates a variety of work including drawings and prints but is most well-known for her sculpture. She is the daughter of American sculptor Tony Smith, who helped influence her career by having her assist in making cardboard models for his geometric sculptures.
