About The Work

There is a feeling of suspension among the assembly of clouds. Smith offers escapism – and no attachment to earth – suggesting for the viewer abundant space above and below, to levitate among the clouds. Her palette drips through the senses – pale pinks like those of a milkshake, clouds like a dollop of French cream. This milky color scheme is soft and tranquil, tightly nuanced with slight variations that completely absorb one’s gaze, physically imparting a feeling of being soothed and cooled.

Syntheses of dream and identity, the work’s content is that of lightness by way of catharsis. Constellations of Arpian forms lend an eternal state of buoyancy – floating organoid shapes with womblike associations, to that of beginnings. A naivety is palpably authentic
