"Carrie Mae Smith paints hermetic moments of material configuration, teeming with suggestion. The subject matter is undeniably mundane; consisting of cutlery, chinaware, dishtowels and cuts of raw beef arranged simply and set against a pure white background. Yet the work does not feel devoid of or detached from life. Instead, it feels deeply interwoven with it—rich with the potential for reflections concerning gender, class, materialism, and memory."
