Yvette Kaiser Smith - Artist

I am an artist who uses numbers. I create geometric abstractions by using sequences from the numbers pi and e, prime numbers, Pascal’s Triangle, grids and repetition of simple geometric shapes as tools in devising systems for mapping and visualizing numerical values by which I can create new and uncommon patterns.

Majority of my past works are indoor, wall-based, crocheted fiberglass constructions. In 2016, I began developing a body of wall-based works, using laser-cut acrylic sheets separated by vinyl spacers. Use of the laser cutter has removed the sense of my hand from the final product. I am now beginning to explore different ways to bring my hand back into the work.
