Doug Smith

The power of nostalgia coupled with the essence of the American landscape creates the two poles of Doug Smith’s captivating imagery. Early inspiration and a love of natural shapes originate from childhood visits to the Midwest where the young artist glimpsed fleeting patches of geometric land from the backseat of a car or train window. After his first trip by plane, he was mesmerized by the textures and patterns of the crops as they split the world into blocks from above. This fascination becomes articulated through the artist’s combination of realistic and miniature paintings of barns and farms within an abstract impression of the landscapes imprinted on his soul; environments begging for connection within the viewer on visual, intellectual and emotional levels. “Man, despite his sophistication and his many accomplishments, owes his existence to a six inch layer of top soil and the fact that it rains”.
