Adriane Smith

Writer  |  Rochester, NY

Artist in residence January/February 2017

"I’m interested in fairytales, nostalgia, and liminality or the spaces between.
I grew up on Molly Whuppie, Baba Yaga, the Grimm Brothers, and
Hans Christian Anderson and I love how these fairytales are eerie and dark and violent and beautiful and clever and whimsical all at once. They tell
us about the world on a very primal level as they illustrate life, death, love, goodness, sacrifice, and loss. Fairytales are also deeply nostalgic texts.
They are the creation of and yearning for a time and place that never existed. Thus, fairytales speak to the deepest parts of our psyche."
