Working in a vortex of color and often on over twenty varying sizes of canvas at a time, Smith, not unlike the dreams he credits with inspiring his work, paints in a fever of remembrance, memory, mysticism and metaphor.
Taking clues from architecture and religion, Smith’s paintings are a reflection of art and faith.
The US American master of oil painting Joshua Smith translates his imagination on to canvas. Through the medium of painting, Smith developed his own language which speaks of fantasy and nature, blending surrealism into the physical world, with playful imagery and fragments of playful subject matters. His paintings on canvas often presents landscapes with chairs, birds, butterflies and clouds, an imaginaire world where beings are either dreaming or existing in a parallel world, a virtual universe in which dreams and reality fuse.
