John Smith’s vivid abstract paintings catch the eye and draw the viewer into a unique world of his creation. His primary inspiration is his mother’s garden where he spent countless hours soaking up the colors and the rays of sunlight piercing through the layers of flora. Smith’s gestural movements capture his imagery in colorful abstraction that is layered through time and process, revealing various pools of color, alternating brush strokes, and unique marks. The resulting work is a stunning, kaleidoscopic reflection of nature’s beauty.
John Smith is from Brentwood, California, and has been making art since 2011.
