Kiki Smith (born January 18, 1954, in Nuremberg, Germany)
http://www.art21.org/artists/kiki-smith
wikipedia is very dry and writes:  is an American artist classified as a feminist artist, a movement with beginnings in the 20th century. Her Body Art is imbued with political significance, undermining the traditional erotic representations of women by male artists, and often exposes the inner biological systems of females as ametaphor for hidden social issues. Her work also often includes the themes of birth and regeneration, as well as sustenance, and frequently has Catholic allusions. Smith has also been active in debate over controversies such as AIDS,gender, race, and battered women.

Magpie Magazine presents Viriditas: an anthology of contemporary women artists. 
A new publication showcasing emerging talent from an international array of women whose work ranges from intimate self portraits to ritualistic group performances, experimental photography to intricate paintings drawn from dreams.
Featuring in-depth interviews with artists, each chapter explores the intrinsic themes weaving within their work: creating myths for the modern day, embracing the sensual, becoming both creator and muse, confronting the eternal circle of life and death, and exploring our relationship with the natural world and our own inner primal nature. 
Springing from the pantheon of artists before them, the female Surrealists in the 20s to the Feminist artists in the 60s and 70s, the artists in this collection re-address earlier questions and present a fresh perspective on subjects that are still important today.  
To be released 20th March 2014.
150 Pages Full Colour.
Limited edition of 500.

‘Viriditas’ is a latin word conjured by the 10th century abbess Hildegard von Bingen.  It symbolises verdant blooming and the vital pulse, the soul essence of all things. It is the holy greening power, the driving force of the cosmos and the higher soul self. It is feminine energy: giving life, birthing.
