A little boy asked his mother, “Why are you crying?” “Because I’m a woman,” she told him.
“I don’t understand,” he said. His Mom just hugged him and said, “And you never will.”
Later the little boy asked his father, “Why does mother seem to cry for no reason?”
“All women cry for no…

Caux Collective Recommends: Tony Delfino (Smithe)
A few months ago, Mexican Graffiti Artist & Illustrator Tony Delfino, otherwise known as Smithe, made the art world aware of his very first set of handmade screenprints, of which I have provided a few images in the above photoset, and I thought it was about high-time I shared them with you, so here they are.
Before we get too far into it, for this post I’ve decided to attempt a little experiment, by giving all you art lovers the bare minimum content, mere snapshots of the work, if you will, as opposed to the finished artifacts. This is partly because I saw the close up shots on Delfino’s Behance and thought they would make an interesting change, but also just to see if this type of post will receive the same sort of attention, and encourage you all to look for more of his work, to find the finished pieces, or whether many of you will see the subtlety in this presentation as off-putting and simply scroll past it. I’m sure it’ll be interesting either way. I hope.
Anyway, back to the art. These wonderfully detailed pieces feature intrinsically dissected human heads, each with an added geometric, machine-like twist and are oddly equal in both stark beauty and slightly disturbing features. The gritty, hand-drawn elements of these prints really add new dimensions to their appearance, and the content, as already discussed, certainly alludes to some very intriguing thoughts about what exactly Smithe is implying is within each of us.
If you’d like to see more from Tony Delfino, or the art produced under his mononymous moniker, Smithe, follow the links to his website, Tumblr and Behance profile, all linked above.

You may have seen this iconic silhouette of Duchamp before. Duchamp’s Self-Portrait in Profile (1957) was originally created for Robert Lebel’s “Sur Marcel Duchamp” (1959). Duchamp used zinc stencils to tear sheets of paper. 137 hand-torn silhouettes were then mounted to the deluxe editions of Lebel’s monograph. You may learn more about “Sur Marcel Duchamp” in our current installation Duchamp as an Open Book.
