In Untitled, Smith collages together newspapers, drawings, and posters to create a readymade abstraction. Smith is best known for his paintings in which he uses the letters of his own name in various configurations as a subject matter. Through Untitled’s process of assemblage, his stockpiled typefaces are used with similar effect. Loosing their function as information, words, scribbles, and symbols merge as a cacophony of prefab mark-making. In presenting a barrage of appropriated expression, Smith questions the hierarchical structures by which meaning is created.
