Brian Smith, RI

"I seek out subjects that I can create a narrative usually based on people going about their daily lives. I admire the work of Joseph Zbukvic who said “Indicate don’t state”; wise words. I tend to use structure as a framework to set figures within either from my sketchbook, en plein air or imagination."
