Gwen Smith’s "The Black Women Project" (Vol. 1 & 2) is a collection of her painted portraits of renowned Black Women. Smith uses selfies to reference each time she entered her studio over a period of 2.5 years, creating a rhythm by merging her identity as a Black Woman with her subjects. Some of the women Smith chooses to paint are artists, scientists, educators, politicians, writers, poets and performers. All are respected by Smith and provide the impetus for her ongoing self exploration.
