on Gender representation and choice of materials.   Kiki Smith: I  like making things delicate. I guess you could call them "girls' materials" I would just as easily use some other material, but I like that quality of fragility. In making work that's about the body, playing with the indestructibility of life, where life is this ferocious force that keeps propelling us; at the same time, it's also about how you can just pierce it and it dies.

Kiki Smith- Untitled- varies heights- 1990- Beeswax and microcrystalline wax. Even though these sculptures are a little more graphic that I would normally like I was interested in them because of the realistic feel. They look so real but hang and droop lifelessly. You can sense the implied weight of the forms by the drooping of the shoulders and head.
