2012 Poster Painting
Clarice Smith is described by critics as an intriguing and enigmatic artist. Belonging to no school, yet clearly influenced by several traditions, she creates a world through paint that is at the same time tangible and distant; familiar yet disquieting. Her oeuvre includes portraits, florals, landscapes, still-lifes and horses painted with ease, yet a convincing reality and an ambience unique to a particular place. Both in technique and mood, her paintings share little with the strict photo-realists who are her contemporaries but are rather linked to earlier painters who are her inspiration. She has had numerous solo exhibitions in prestigious galleries in the United States and abroad including an exhibit at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in 2011. She is represented by the Gerald Peters Gallery in New York City. See more of her work at www.claricesmith.com
