One critic has written: “The ferocity of his attack on church, state and press, and on the inhumanity of just about every instrument and symbol of the capitalist system, leaves no doubt about Smith’s conviction that in order to attain the freedom and scope it needed to realise its human and artistic potential, American sculpture – like Americans as a people – had to free itself from a system of values and conventions that thrived on collusion, obedience and exploitation.” (Michael Brenson in Independent Curators Incorporated, 1996)
