Move towards that which makes you feel more alive – Rodney Smith
My work embodies personal growth and fruition, with paint recording the splendid reality of living. Energy that runs deeply through us is presented in the emotion of line, color, texture and pattern – fluid experiences standing as frames of life.
The simplicity and ease of painting is in harmony with the pulse of energy I capture in my work. I let the paint drip, flow, and add dimension with layers of pattern and line. My subject matter presents transient reality – birds, flowers, a moving figure – captured with a quick and keen eye, but above all with love and affection. The world that surrounds us is so precious. I seek to capture the aliveness at the heart of being.
