Ashley Catharine Smith
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Williamsburg



ARTIST STATEMENT: Ashley Catharine Smith is New York based artist working in photography, video, and fibers. Through the combination of these mediums, she creates melodramatic depictions of relationships and sexuality. Her work is driven by her desire to understand how feeling rules and gender roles affect our interpersonal relationships and sense of self. It also aims to construct moments of closeness with the subjects of her photographs through their printed image. Smith earned her MFA in Photography, Video & Related Media from the School of Visual Arts. Her work has been exhibited throughout the United States at the Society for Contemporary Craft (2016), Marin Museum of Contemporary Art (2017), Center for Sex and Culture in San Francisco (2017), Pittsburgh Center for the Arts (2016), and the Knockdown Center (2017) among others. She is currently an adjunct photography professor at Drexel University and an instructor at the International Center of Photography.
