Introductory Remarks and Artist’s Talk 2:00 p.m.
“A landscape for Michael Smith is a world and a whirled. He recognizes that all his references are to landscape and he is obsessed with those possibilities. There is no single way for his landscapes to be viewed or rendered and, as a result, the process of their realization is neither stable nor predictable. In Smith’s hands, a landscape is a repository for memory (the past) and a site for making (the present). At their core, they hold emotion, psychology and aesthetics in an inexplicable balance.”
