The Art of Carrie Mae Smith

Carrie Mae Smith

 

MARCH is presenting an exhibition of new works by painter Carrie Mae Smith, featuring culinary still lifes rendered in oil on panel and vellum. The  show opened March 20, 2014 and continues through May 30.

 

At once restrained and exuberant, Smith transforms compositions of comestibles, silverware, cutlery and plates into tableaus teeming with resonance and eloquence. “Food is something we all have a relationship with,” said Carrie Mae Smith. “My work examines and re-examines these familiar subjects, experimenting with composition, brushstrokes, light and shadow, inviting the viewer to fill in the blanks of both form and context.”

 

Inspired by Morandi’s simplified still lifes and Wayne Thiebaud’s iconic edibles, Smith’s fascination with food began at a young age while watching countless episodes of the French Chef and assisting her father in his butcher shop, and later developed during her time working as a chef on Martha’s Vineyard.

 

This is Carrie Mae Smith’s second solo show at MARCH.  Her work is included in major private collections.
