DESCRIPTION

George Billis Gallery is pleased to present Luscious, and exhibition of Charlotte Smith's new paintings. The exhibition features the artist's recent abstract paintings and continues through June 16th.

Catherine Anspon, author of "Texas Artists Today," writes of Smith's work: "With these new paintings, Charlotte Smith has gone from workmanlike, whimisical, crafty surfaces with encrustation of pleasing piles of paint and pigment to something enticingly lusty - wet and wild, even - and in the process is defining a new way of painting.

To the viewer, we enjoin: Revel in Smith's surfaces, and take note. You are gazing upon a new, vital and optimistic way of painting. These paintings are not understated, but they are beautiful. Surrender to the emotions they invoke; open yourself up to these whorls. What are you capable of perceiving I the depths of Smith's pigment pools?"

Charlotte Smith lives and works in Dallas, Texas. Her paintings have been exhibited in museums and across the United States, such as the Dallas Art Museum, The MAC, the Dallas Center for Contemporary Art, and the Huntington Beach Art Center, and most recently at the Galveston Arts Center, Galveston, Texas.
