Artist Angela Christine Smith mixes various artistic mediums to create intriguing and thought-provoking pieces of art.

The artist's series entitled 'Dissections' uses herself as the subject, which is combined with silver gelatin photography and an inked overlay of an anatomical illustration. The photos are shot in black and white but have some added coloring in the form of what appear like tattoos on her body. The compelling results of the series makes for an interesting introspection as to how we convey people's figures versus what our bodies are actually made up of, which are less then appealing tendons and organs. Angela Christine Smith defines her need to continue pursuing art, "Through my extensive photographic practice and experience I intend to be enthusiastically committed to the advancement of photographic education, dialog, and my own personal artistic endeavors."
