Kiki Smith: Lodestar, the artist’s first major New York gallery show in eight years, features “Pilgrim”, an installation composed of nearly thirty hand-painted stained glass panels. Originally inspired by an eighteenth-century silk needlepoint, “Pilgrim” is a cyclical journey which alludes to various aspects of a person’s life, presented through the images of women. Smith has been working on “Pilgrim” since 2005, and began the glass paintings three years ago at the renowned German glass atelier, Mayer’sche Hofkunstanstalt GmbH-Mayer of Munich.
