Amanda M. Smith
Looking at these ceramic pieces by Amanda M. Smith, I am pleasantly reminded of the work of Henry Darger. And I am sure it’s no coincidence that part of the Estate of Henry Darger is also sold through Andrew Edlin Gallery, where some of Smith’s works are exhibited. But of course, Smith has her own style and her own medium–that is not Darger’s. I can appreciate the influence, nonetheless. What a marvel of detail and imaginary scenery these ceramics reveal!
