American , b. 1972

In his life-sized sculptures of animals, Shawn Smith filters the natural world through digital systems. Working in the form of 3D printing and handcrafted wood, Smith locates two-dimensional images of fauna on the Internet and constructs three-dimensional versions of them. Many of his sculptures are constructed with hand-colored strips of wood that function as voxels, building blocks of the larger compositions that give them a pixelated appearance. The works are counter-intuitive, relying on the handmade to allude to the digital, and creating tension between an object’s miniature components and its holistic form.
