Cigarettes seem to play a minor, but smoky 'background aside' in your sketches over the past 4.5 months, but are they significant (symbolic) of something I'm not picking up on ?

Whoops, almost didn’t see this question. It’s ironic actually because I don’t smoke and I never have (total coffee addict though). I guess I draw figures smoking because it provides a feeling of contemplation. Every time a friend of mine smokes they seem to be lost in thought. Or sometimes I just need to add something to a drawing and I usually go for cigarettes or coffee cups. It’s funny you asked I was pondering this the other day.

Kiki Smith - Lilith, 1994 - Bronze, silicon, and glass.

“In medieval Jewish lore, Lilith was Adam’s first wife.  When she demanded to be Adam’s equal, she was evicted from the Garden of Eden.  Lilith flew away to the demon world, replaced by the more submissive Eve.  Smith catches us off guard with Lilith’s pose and placement.  Most sculptures receive our gaze passively, but Lilith stares back with piercing brown eyes, ready to pounce.”

hella dope
