Nyugen Smith- Fine Tooth Comb

I’ve had the pleasure of working with the incredible Nyugen E. Smith TWICE now- he is one of those artists that I will stand behind no matter what he does, he is an artist through and through and every performance, sculpture, collage, painting or drawing he makes has incredible weight and meaning. One of our generation’s best. Tonight his new show opens at Ramapo College-  check it out if you’re on the Jersey side. I’d also like to congratulate Nyugen for receiving a full scholarship to get his MFA at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) ! GET IT NYUGEN!!!


Fine Tooth Comb: Searching for SELF in the Collections, an exhibition which collages art by Jersey City artist Nyugen E. Smith with works he has selected from the Ramapo College collections, opens on Wednesday, February 12 in the Kresge Gallery on campus. There will be an opening reception from 5 to 7 p.m. An artist’s talk begins at 6 p.m.

Smith was invited to respond to works in the collection. He has created a uniquely personal, yet playful installation with various media. The exhibition includes painting, sculpture, video and site-specific mixed media installations.
