Gary Smith, Orange Park, FL. 32065 Member Since December 2009 Artist Statement As a visual artist, I am constantly stimulated by the never ending variety of shapes and colors that surround us. It's not enough just to replicate what I see, but rather to interpret. Combining form with color relationships and bold values I feel compelled to express my thoughts and emotions with strong, and often stylized shapes. What I feel about the subject draws me to my brush and pallette knife. I have painted the monumental to the insignificant, each with equal passion. It all begins with an idea and a burning passion to create and express. But before I get too much into myself, I must credit God with any talent that delivers artistic results.”
Gary divides his creative time between his studio high in the Smokey Mountains and at his sea level studio in Orange Park, Florida. He is a member and supporter of several art guilds and locally is a member of the Art Guild of Orange Park and Haywood County Arts Council of N.C.
Today his art is exhibited in 5 galleries from North Carolina to Florida.
