GEOFFREY TODD SMITH
ART This image here by Geoffrey is called “The Diamond Rind of the Ruby Rapefruit”. His other pieces include titles like “Flick the Groom off Your Cake Topper and Turn up the Cyndi Lauper” or “Everything U Fuck Turns 2 Math”. I wonder how the heck he comes up with these titles. His work is an expression of his experiences, memories and interests. He’s compelled to make images to communicate visually with the viewer. “I love engaging in a nonverbal conversation with the viewer that elicits a tangible response to abstract information.” -Smith
ART Here’s a you tube interview with artist, Michael Lin. He’s internationally known for his painted frescoes and floorings, which make use of large-scale reproductions of the traditional floral motifs of Taiwanese textiles. Very pretty.
