William Smith

 

I am a fine artist with a degree from the University of the Arts in painting. I have shown my paintings and photography around the United States in several exhibitions. My work can be seen at Schmidt dean gallery in Philadelphia. www.schmidtdean.com My work is included in many private and public collections such as The Philadelphia Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art in New York as well as The Delaware Art Museum. I have  always taken photos and use photography to document my life and the world around me. I have highlighted my father in my work (photography) through storytelling and have shared it with my audience on @instagram with the tag I created #mydadthemaninthehat

 While my paintings elicit a particular mood rather than a place, my photography explores the interactions that we have with our environment. I seek to elicit a particular mood, and not to perseverate on the physical setting of the image. I use a unique perspective to create a distortion of everyday life. My photos juxtapose elements of reality with inventions of the mind’s eye to create unique images. I enjoy exploring the contrast that can only be found in black and white images.
