Description

Remember the happy face?  Well if you do, you’re dating yourself, since it
first appeared in 1971 and has barely been out of fashion since.  Fletcher Smith,
who has borrowed from pop culture icons since his East Village days, has
repurposed smiley to literally make a point.  Is this some punishing beach ware
or a proposed symbol for the above referenced age of nice?  Does the happy face
perhaps have a darker side?  In any case, it’s nice to know you can still buy
happiness, in this installation any ways, by the row.

Laugh It Off, Curated by Jane Scott, Girl Wonder Inc., Walter Maciel Gallery
