    About The Work

    Based on her painting titled The Studio (Memento Mori), Smith's new edition Memento Mori Wall Clock presents audiences with a literal interpretation on her metaphorical rumination of the passage of time. Its composition references 17th century Vanitas paintings, while the melting ice cube and refracted low slung cherry represent sensuality, mortality, and the perilous position of the female artist. With Smith’s recurrent phrase “The Studio” looming overhead, Memento Mori Wall Clock becomes an intricate exploration of the tremendous force that creation exerts over ones desires and fears.
