Delaney Smith

Medium: Fiber
Residency: September 1, 2013–
August 31, 2014

Delaney Smith is a visual artist working primarily with paper and bookmaking to create sculptures and interactive books. With a focus on aligning process and inherent qualities of material, she explores the ideas of accumulation, transformation, and duality. Her interactive books develop as the viewer alters the pages, creating a unique story of marks and questioning expectations of how one should approach a book.

Delaney received her BFA in graphic communications from the University of Southern Mississippi and her MFA in fibers from the University of North Texas. Her work has recently been selected for Materials Hard and Soft and is part of the permanent collection at Texas Women’s State University. She has received several grants and scholarships from the University of North Texas, including the B. Craig Raupe Travel Grant to attend the Yuma Art Symposium in Yuma, Arizona.

During her one-year residency, Delaney will continue to explore interactivity in her sculptures and books. She finds inspiration in collaborative environments and challenges herself to stay receptive.  Interchange with visitors and further experimentation with materials will shape her work. She will be with HCCC through August of 2014.  For more information, visit https://delaneysmithstudio.com/.
