His works have been described as "expressionistic figurative sculpture", and when you encounter Ken Smith's art it will not surprise you to learn that he has studied anatomy at George Washington Medical School and has had professional experience as a medical illustrator. But his is not merely technical expertise.
"Expressionistic" is the operative adjective relating to his art. He takes his talent for accurate anatomy and elevates it with a remarkable creativity. It is beautiful, or stunning, or horrific - but never ordinary. His work can be found in the collections of the British Museum, Smithsonian Museum, Brookgreen Gardens , and soon to be in the Gibbs Museum.
Winning numerous awards for sculpture in the Grand Strand area, he has also been chosen for participation in National Sculpture Society Exhibitions in New York, the Contemporary Sculpture Exhibition at Chesterwood in Massachusetts, and Sculpture in the Park, in Loveland. Colorado.
