Eric Smith

Over the last several years, I have continually revisited the imagery found in these works.  Within each composition, a stagnant subject stands silhouetted against a turbulent sky.  These stoic icons defy the situations in which they find themselves placed, and I am drawn to that resolve.  When I look at these works, I see tumult and tranquility.  These are seemingly two conflicting states, yet one cannot exist without the other.


Moments of each punctate our lives and serve as the setting for existence.  Whith each investigation, I have sought to hone in the communication of this idea.  For me, these works reflect the moment in which you realize you cannot control the conditions around you.  You can only control your response to them.
