I have to admit Shinique Smith's sculptural forms were more interesting to me than her paintings. They're fully luscious, sexy bulbous forms - like a Ruben's girl, all wrapped up. Nadiah Fellah interviews Smith for New American Paintings and I love that the first thing she says is...I think I’m cocky about being a woman.
