Brian Smith - “The act of painting is a vital experience. I see my art as a record of the subconscious and the painting process. The result is an interaction of imagined forms and spaces. Each work is intuitively developed through a personal method and logic. The reactions I have to the natural world and to the art that inspires me inform their meaning.” Bold shapes of color and texture interact with pattern and collage to form the likeness of places found in the natural world. The dynamic play of space welcomes the viewer into scenes that are open to interpretation in this new solo exhibition.
