The women here have no more concern for the artist or his view of them than would a horse or a leopard, and thus they have the same animal power and unconscious sensuality.

David Smith: Points of Power

Published by Galerie Gmurzynska
Edited by Sally Fisher. Foreword by Krystyna Gmurzynska, Mathias Rastorfer. Text by Candida Smith, Sarah Hamill, Allyn C. Shepard.

David Smith: Points of Power is the first publication to trace the figurative impulse running throughout the oeuvre of Abstract Expressionist sculptor and painter David Smith (1906–1965). Beautifully designed and printed, it provides a broad overview of his figurative explorations in painting, sculpture, photography and ceramics, which intensified in the years before his death. Most of these are female nudes, worked by Smith into strong, calligraphic forms that often extend the viscous fluidity of enamel (on canvas or linen) into near-abstraction. Smith’s ceramic plates offer an even broader range of figurative treatments, from a few minimal incised lines to more defined nudes evoking Greek pottery. The catalogue features an introduction by the artist’s daughter, Candida Smith, as well as a scholarly essay by Sarah Hamill and a wealth of archival photographs by Alexander Liberman, taken during the last weekend of Smith’s life.

The Figurative Work of David Smith

The Figurative Work of David SmithFeatured image, the 1964 enamel on canvas, "Untitled (Nude)," is reproduced from Points of Power, the first publication to trace the figurative impulse in the work of Abstract Expressionist David Smith. In her catalog essay, Candida Smith, the artist's daughter, writes, "The artist... kept his distance. He gave his 'models' no direction. The women here have no more concern for the artist or his view of them than would a horse or a leopard, and thus they have the same animal power and unconscious sensuality. They ask to be seen as something other than 'figures'" continue to blog
