About Lucien Smith

Smith creates work that traverses a spectrum of styles and concerns, from chance to purpose, spare to saturated, sublime to familiar. These visual approaches, or conceptual directives, may combine and overlap in one piece, or spread individually through a body of work – each idea originally segregated, fully integrates when understood as an oeuvre. His work acts as a tangible moment, a chronicle of exploration, as he negotiates with existence. He reminds us that an artist’s trajectory is a sensory reflection of individual experience. Lucien Smith received his BFA from Cooper Union in 2011. Recent solo exhibitions include Good Vibrations at Half Gallery, New York, NY, and Seven Rain Paintings at OHWOW, Los Angeles, CA. This year, Smith’s work was also included in Merci Mercy, curated by Christine Messineo, New York, NY, and in Beyond the Object, at Brand New Gallery, Milan, Italy.
