Vicki Smith is a Canadian painter known for her paintings of female figures that explore the possibilities and limitations of gravity. Often shown suspended in rippling water; twisted and upside-down, falling into and out of the picture plane, these figures are often so precariously placed upon the canvas that they threaten to slip away or dissolve. Though rarely grounded, they are always balanced.
Vicki Smith studied fine art at the Ontario College of Art. She lives and works in Toronto.
