The artist:    

Developing her art practice since 1995, Fifi Smiths exhibits nationally and internationally.  Her current work is in the form of kinetic projection installations, experimental movies, and light boxes.


Conceptually, she explore the relationship within the individual between mass behavior/conformity and individuality. . By the use of composition, form and symbolism she goes where there are no certainties, and therefore, no absolutes, - fertile ground for this visual artist. 


Although the investigation of concepts is key to her work, the materials used remain fundamental to her drive to communicate, and materiality remains intregal to her practice. More recently she works in experimental film, kenitic light works and expanded cinema.
