Douglas O Smith: Sweeping Foliage

Sweeping Foliage


I have been attempting to describe my search for the love of the inexplicable using my hands and eyes for over 40 years now.

– – –

I am not interested in hiding behind an intellectual supposition and I am certainly not interested in shocking the viewer with my provocations, except perhaps of a quiet gentle nudge to see the possibility of a greater realm in our perceptions.

I am interested in making a space where people can see perhaps love, perhaps beauty, perhaps joy. To me this is where the changes can happen. My gods are the great poets who reach for the sublime ethers. This mining for the greater gold is what keeps me going.
