About the work
Josh Smith
American, b. 1976
Follow

Josh Smith is best known for his aggressive, gestural paintings of his own name, in which the letters fluctuate between signifiers and abstracted forms. In recent years, he has experimented with more figurative subjects such as fish, leaves, skeletons, and insects. Using murky color and large brushstrokes, Smith is not interested in precisely rendering his subjects, but rather in exploring the possibilities of abstraction. Many of his paintings incorporate digital images of previous work, which he then exhaustively reworks.
