UVM Fleming Museum
1991, painted steel

Smith created this piece while serving as an artist-in-residence at UVM. While his vocabulary of forms draws heavily from traditional African Art, his work is easily categorized as Abstract Expressionist. Kindred Spirits’ placement at the Fleming Museum set the stage for an exhibition of Smith’s drawings and smaller sculpture at the museum in 1999.
