Chris Smith, Plymouth Member Since February 2007 Artist Statement Hello all, my name is Chris Smith and I grew up in a small Minnesota town of about 2000 people. I have traveled to many places in these United States, such as Texas, Georgia, the Carolinas, The Dakotas, and many more. I have a degree in portrait photography and have a Movie Review blog called "The Rockport Review". You can check it out at www.Rockportfilm.com. I have also done a lot of stop motion animation, that I have posted on my YouTube Channel.
The influences for my art work come from music, films, art & design and life itself. I am obsessive about movies, independent and otherwise. My personal heroes are David Lynch, David Fincher, W. Eugene Smith, Steven Soderbergh, and all those people who create. Dreams are necessary in a world of chaos.
