FROM THE ARTIST

"The act of painting is a vital experience. My art is about memory, imagination and the process of painting. Meaning in the work can be derived from specific feelings I have about nature as well as my responses to the art that inspires me. The overall effect of the paintings should be understood metaphorically.

I create intuitively to develop images that appear as a view into an imagined space. The arrangement of colors, textures and shapes are fundamental characteristics of my paintings which are integrated to convey a dazzling optical effect and a spirited emotional quality. The sensuous qualities of paint make these aspects both conspicuous and abstract."

- Brian D. Smith
