Blu Smith creates radiant, abstractionist paintings utilizing a prismatic range of pigments and a creative freedom from the limitations of realism or literal imagery.
Smith is best known for his broad washes and textures while pulling out and developing 3D shapes within the structures. He then attempts to resolve the surface with incisive line drawing. Smith explains "I look at my paintings not as individual pieces but rather as a living, breathing and constantly changing body of work. It really does take on a life of its own."
Smith's imaginative style is a stimulating twist on the representation of landscape and has developed a very distinguished voice as a contemporary artist providing viewers with an innovative approach to the perception and appreciation of natural scenery.
