Out Of This World fluid abstract triptych paintings by Preston M. Smith PMS
Artwork Description: A 30x30 woodland path abstract landscape painting in rainbow colours. This painting was painted after a walk I took near Glyndebourne in East Sussex. It was a beautiful clear autumn day and the path was lined with trees glowing yellow, read morered, purple and green in the low autumn sun. This path led up to a steeper path that eventually goes to the top of the South Downs. I tried to capture my impression of the place in an abstract, possibly expressionist style using very thick wet oil paint and I worked into (wet into wet) over the course of two days. I wanted to capture the low angle of the sun and the impression of the light through the leaves picking out glimpses of ivy on the ancient trees, ferns and leaves in autumn golds and greens. I was very pleased with the result as it gives a satisfying flavour of the scene and how I felt being there rather than trying to be traditionally realistic. I love paths such as these as I always imagine something fantastic being about to be discovered just around the corner. Sometimes I am rewarded with a glimpse of a deer or fox but usually a view through trees to another world keeps me very happy.

This is a print of my first painting in my series of currency paintings. I looked at a one hundred dollar bill longer than I ever looked read moreat money before in my life. What is our relationship with these little pieces of linen.
After peeling down the entire onion of Karen Ann Jones, what I found was ‘Karen the painter.’ The same person I was when I was 5. I never changed, I only left who I was for a while. I paint because that is who I am. Being my most authentic me is my true integrity.
My goal in my work is to express my optimistic, happy, in love with life, quirky, deep, intimate and passionate perspective of life.
I choose my painting by recreating a visual of the feelings I am having at that moment. I get to spend personal time with that passionate feeling that I long to experience. This is probably why I don’t paint a painting in one day. I want to linger in that relationship.
My current body of work started with my desire to paint drag queens. I am fascinated because of their extremes and the beautiful contradictions that they are. I love contradictions. I didn’t have a drag queen shoved in my closet to photograph and paint. This urgency to paint led me to Barbie’s. beautifully expressive … Lipstick and Rubber. Canvas was boring the hell out of me, so I started painting on steel. I love the raw ruggedness of steel with the buttery feel of oil paint. It was the contradiction I was looking for. I have since fallen in love with Barbie’s and steel. I love the expressiveness and versatility of both. I love bringing the soul out of a rubber doll. They all have life to me and I think the steel honors them and makes them regal. I recently started looking closer at things that we may feel shy looking at. Using lipstick and rubber feels like the ideal tool for this direction in my work. bringing Freshness and intimacy to inanimate objects.
