Girls in the Naked Girl Business: Mandy Morbid (II)
Acrylic on paper
88.9 x 69. 8 cm
Smith sources his imagery from a wide range of sources including studies of friends from his past employment in the porn industry. These women feature largely in Smith’s work as protagonists of indulgence, sexuality, and abandon; their inherent sensuality a departure point for visual embellishment of luscious patterning, rich hues, evocative composition, and prurient texture.
