Doug Smith
American Icon

About

Acrylic on canvas, 48 x 48 inches With a clear nod to the San Francisco Bay Area figurative movement that flourished during his mid-century youth, Doug Smith combines the exuberance of abstract expressionism with the arresting intimacy of the realistically familiar. Traditional farmhouses and weathered barns punctuate his vast planes of color, line and texture. From the endless agrarian mosaics one might observe from an airplane and the archetypical homesteads that appear mostly in memory, Smith’s compositions evoke the enduring binaries characterized by the American West: boundless optimism and wistful nostalgia; nature’s randomness and man’s ordered domesticity. Born in San Francisco, Smith draws on the aesthetic popularized by Richard Diebenkorn and Elmer Bischoff of the Bay Area School, as well as the reassuring rural imagery of American Regionalism. His work has been exhibited at galleries and museums throughout the United States and world and is in the permanent collections of the Rockwell Museum in New York and the Booth Western Art Museum in Cartersville, Georgia, among others.
