Wrapping an amethyst geode in melted audiotape recordings of “Purple Haze,” Robleto pays homage to the rock star’s most iconic song and the dazzling nature of his guitar skills. Robleto describes this work as emerging from a desire to translate “the skills and logic of DJ culture into the sculptural realm.” Here, he quite literally applies a DJ’s techniques to art-making—from song selection to scratching, cutting, sequencing, mixing, and most importantly, sampling. For Robleto, sampling is not just a technique, but a philosophy: “Sampling was quite a liberating and radical idea to me at the time—it revealed to me that with the right care and attention, anything, even the scraps and trash of the world, contained whole other creative universes waiting to be birthed.” Through his early melted vinyl and audiotape works, Robleto gave sensuous form to the intangible emotional effects of music that exist beyond sound. From the artist: "There is a very personal dimension to the work as well, based on a childhood memory. The piece was made to acknowledge this moment in a way I was not yet equipped to as a child. I had a friend in elementary school named Jimmie who I was quite close to. In those years there was no way for either of us to put a name to why he was “different.” He was effeminate and kind—all the things most tough young boys were trying hard not to be. He was also very pale-skinned and blushed incredibly easily. We connected through geology, fossils, and music—especially his love of Jimi Hendrix. The fact that he had the same name, although spelled differently, as one of his musical heroes was a constant source of fun to us both. Later in life he would come out to me, although we knew long before without saying so. One day in gym class, he was being mercilessly picked on during basketball for not wanting to take his shirt off in the “skins and shirts” game. Because of my sticking up for him that day, I was punched hard in the face by another kid. With a bloody lip and swollen cheek, I was sent to the principal’s office with Jimmie and the other kid. I remember sitting there with Jimmie waiting to go into the principal’s office, his cheeks as red as I had ever seen them, and us making fun of the fact that mine were now as red as his. It is one of the sweetest memories I have—two kids trying to find some humor in a situation we both knew was more than we could yet comprehend. This piece, and the title, were made and written to acknowledge that: Jimmie, your cheeks will never lose their luster."

A bounty of perfectly ripe, unblemished fruit hints at fecundity and virtue, while everything else foreshadows seduction and sin. The rattlesnake coiled around the empty hourglass amplifies the threat of the white teeth, a recurrent motif that Smith describes as “a cartoon for a hyper masculine man-splain[ing] mouth—like an early 20th century tycoon, bared teeth blabbing wide.” Smith’s work often bridges art history and popular culture to explore gender politics and representation. There is humor to her iconography—the hourglass riffs on the term “hourglass figure” and the snake doubles as a phallus. Her art helps us consider how women have been represented in everything from paintings to soap operas, with a limited cast of women as either femme fatales or the Virgin Mary. Here she traces these flawed types to their Biblical roots with Eve and original sin. Smith describes "Temptation Island" as a “time's up at the dawn of the twenty-first century painting.” As she elaborates: “the hourglass is empty, waiting to be filled with the new content of the new female gender frame.” In this Garden of Eden, something or someone is about to bite.

The latter phrase plays on the song title “You Light Up My Life,” Debby Boone’s saccharine 1977 hit, which was reinterpreted by Aretha Franklin and Whitney Houston. Smith’s use of neon allows the reclamation and transformation of these phrases and imagining of alternative social conditions. Emblazoning the trooper’s words in neon makes them unforgettable, insisting that we witness the cruelty of racist state violence, but we see them change into something positive, rooted in care for others. Smith writes: “I wanted to play with this threat, ‘I will light you up,’ by finding a response that neutralized it. . . . And so this flashing neon is a dance off, a sing-a-thon, a battle, a protest, a memento mori that collectivizes Sandra Bland’s resistance, reclaims her sovereignty, and reifies the ways in which Black culture is inextricably woven into national identities and cultures.” Smith was a professor in UT Austin’s Department of Radio-Television-Film from 2001 to 2007.
