STATEMENT OF WORK

I'd like to create a credibly realistic syntax of assembled, complex visuality using my belated post-impressionism. Lately I've been collaging Guatemalan jaspe-type woven textiles as a dynamic visual ground, to paint against, influenced by their rhythmic use of complementary colors. I try to make more human-shaped, layered, two-eyed visual fields in photographic as well as painting constructions. I have reacted against the rectangularity and seamless idealism of classical representation. First pinhole photography and more recently digital photography and the computer have helped develop my sense of multiplicity and time's passage, and I make my use of Photoshop transparently evident. I'm attracted to a tolerance for complexity in multiple levels of awareness--even at the cost of 72-pixel reproductability. Not really at the level of documentary, sometimes I catch an intimate angle on topics of wider interest, like "The Dictatorship of the Auto," or "The Fall" (as in rise and fall, of moods, markets, and world trade centers). I appreciate feedback to polsmit@hotmail.com.  An example of my writing, thoughts about writing on art, in Art In America's Oct 2014 issue, can be found online by googling "Pantheon of the Anteater."
