Aspired Inspiration – Den Smith

Den Smith finds inspiration in nature and wonder, and sees a cyclical relationship between inspiration and creation. In late 2022, her turned to mono printing to rejuvenate his creative process after a hiatus caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Initially focusing on painting on canvas with surreal landscapes and nature themes, they were surprised by the spontaneity of mono printing and the challenges it presented. Despite initially feeling limited by the medium, he embraced its looser expression and spent months experimenting with it. Eventually, he integrated the techniques and aesthetics he had learned from mono printing into his paintings. In 2023, he revisited his earlier mono prints and found new inspiration, leading to further experimentation and creation.

Opening Reception May 31, 6-8 pm
