“Jean Smith is a f***ing genius. She is one half of the long running avant garde band Mecca Normal and she is a published novelist. She is unsentimental, but her work always leaves me with my own bruised longing exposed.” – Molly Zuckerman-Hartung, an Adjunct Assistant Professor at the Art Institute of Chicago whose paintings were included in the 2014 Whitney Museum of American Art Biennial. Molly bought “The Hat #24” in late February. She also told me to raise my prices!
