Artist Statement:
My work draws heavily on the sense of a particular moment in time, whether that moment is conveyed as a representational image or an abstraction.  The formal elements of the visual language give me the tools to transform the idea; the process of manipulating these elements to support the theme bring the idea into focus. Thirty years of technical experience inform the execution of the process.  And, over time, the marks made have repeated themselves, forming their own iconology, becoming their own unique signature.

The inherent warmth of the wood, the use of hand tools, the physicality of pulling the print, are all a significant part of the process which plays a part in informing the final print. ~ Kathryn Lee Smith

Kathryn Lee Smith's work is represented in many private, corporate and museum collections, including Boston Public Library, Provincetown Art Association and Museum, and the FitzWilliam Museum in Cambridge, England.  Kathryn Smith represents the culmination of over a century of refinement of the technique first credited to the early Provincetown printers at the turn of the 20th century.

"Kathi Smith’s work has evolved over the past twenty-five years from the initial simplicity of her earliest prints to a far more intense form, then back briefly to a minimalist approach and most recently to a new complexity one does not usually associate with the white-line print.  Kathi Smith has crossed the fine white line with her constant desire to push this print form in the 21st century.  She has found a comfort level within the block that has produced remarkable results.  -- James R. Bakker, Guest Curator, Crossing the Fine White Line, New Bedford Art Museum, 2008
