P C Smith
Artist P C Smith avoids the usual flat rectangle as a plane for painting, drawing or photography, constructing objects with curving, intersecting, bi-cylindrical planes. This creates a more human-shaped, two-eyed picture plane, with a central seam of sudden re-vision. Even in early un-constructed work, he reacted against the seamless idealism of classical representation. Smith has been a New York City based artist for over 35 years. His work is primarily channeled through painting constructions, photo-constructions, and writing. Smith is currently working on a painting construction entitled “Drowned Feeling 3”, inspired by the story of roughhousing and drowning by teens.
