Using a ceramic tool to pick away at the surface of his images, Smith applies this technique to create triangle- and diamond-shaped patterns over photographs he has taken on trips back to Jamaica, where he was born, in neighborhoods he refers to as “non-tourist locations.” Many of Smith’s photos are black-and-white or a shade of blue, a decision that connects them to memory and distances them from conventional tourist depictions of the Caribbean as a colorful place.", "Dedication" : "Blanton Museum of Art, The University of Texas at Austin, Gift of Zieher Smith, 2016", "Copyright_Type" : "", "Disp_Obj_Type" : "photograph", "Creation_Place2" : "Jamaican", "Department" : "American and Contemporary Art", "Obj_Name" : "", "Period" : "", "Style" : "", "Edition" : "", "Curator" : "", "Images": [ ] }, ] }
