    In 1994, after joining New York’s PaceWildenstein gallery, Smith was invited to collaborate with Pace Editions’ staff at their Spring Street Workshop. While at the shop, Smith came across a group of doilies once owned by the sculptor Louise Nevelson and was immediately inspired by their forms and associations. Long interested in traditionally “feminine” crafts, Smith was drawn to the decorative, craft-oriented nature of the doily, and to the way its concentric form suggests anatomical parts –the eye, breast, vagina, and even cellular structures. –Museum of Modern Art, Kiki Smith: Prints, Books and Things website
