Vicki Smith

Canada / °1958 /
Vicki Smith studied fine art at the Ontario College of Art, graduating in 1981 with honours. Her 4th year of study was completed in Florence, Italy.

Smith is known for her paintings of female figures. The figures explore the possibilities and limitations of gravity. Often shown suspended in dark air, twisted and upside down, falling into and out of the picture plane, the figures are often so precariously placed upon the canvas that they threaten to slip away. Though rarely grounded, they are always balanced.
In Smith’s latest series of paintings the figures play with gravity in the water. They float, fly, emerge and disappear in the broken surface of the water; a space with infinite boundaries. The paintings have a beautiful deep calm. Vicki Smith’s work has been placed in numerous private collections in North America, Australia, and Europe. She currently works and resides in Toronto.
