Nourish Your Soul Through a Symphony of Light and Colour!
I love my mission! Watching the response and reaction from people observing my artwork either in their home or in a gallery is very rewarding. My whole life has been about creating, from the physical act of making something, to the "seeing" of colors and shapes when listening to a wide variety of music. I eventually learned the term Synesthesia which describes what I have experienced since a young child. Please click on the following link to learn of my experience with synesthesia and how it influences my artwork http://isaacdsmith.com/synesthesia.php Because of these images and colors, I have been drawn to two different mediums- oil painting and stained glass.
I could get into the details and explain how my mission came about which is typically done in these artist statements or about the artist statements and I do not want to repeat that. If you want to hear more on that subject you can contact me through email.
Instead, I will let you know that I have been creating and installing glasswork in people's homes for over 28 years all over the Pacific Northwest and showing my oil paintings in many different shows, galleries and other venues the last 30 years. The one thing that nourishes me is soaking in the reactions and responses: Joy, wonderment, fulfillment, touching their soul, being in awe. These are what my mission entails and fulfills to Nourish Your Soul Through a Symphony of Light and Colour!
