Kiki smiths artwork is very abstract in my opinion. I feel as if she tries to create a parallel between humans an animals in a handful of her works. Kiki seems to be relating a deer and human together. I'm not sure if the deer is giving birth, or if the human is a shadow, or a spirit animal, but they definitely have a strange, intimate relationship. Her sculptures make the viewer feel awkward, at least for me, because of how unnatural a lot of it is.
