Ed Smiley Artist Bio:
I believe in the elusive, the poetic, in ecstasy and joy. My art practice incorporates acrylic transfer of digital printing and xerography into a acrylic painting, as well as inclusion of drawing media, and transferred paint skins. I use scanners and hand movement to produce digitally modified images, gestural yet unpainted, and combine them in overlays with glazes and painted gesture. Image sources for digital distortions can be other paintings, fabrics, and found objects. I aim for a paradox of the intricate and the broadly gestural: inviting the viewer into a vivid disjunction of non-locality through abrupt and colorful rhythmic shifts. I explore the interconnectedness of things, for I believe that everything is connected. I believe in things that can't easily be put into words.
