Art's most important function is its unique ability to interpret and preserve a moment in time or history. It provides a commentary on issues of culture, events and ideas that reflect society, both joyful and grievous. "Lost Spring" by Ford Smith is such a metaphorical narrative on the events of today, in the spring of 2020, when the CoronaVirus impacted the world.
The spring of 2020 has been one that will be remembered for the ages, and yet, like every springtime since the dawn of time, the flowers bloom and the world becomes beautiful as nature works her magic!
“Lost Spring”, a recent and particularly timely release from noted artist Ford Smith, perfectly captures the unique social dynamics of the Lost Spring of 2020 … set against a brooding and introspective background, a radiant palette of trees shouts optimism with a luminous horizon and radiant explosion of colors! As you get lost in the reflections of the properly socially-distanced trees, filled with buoyant, spherical leaves … you experience a sense of convivial and calm, yet so very ready to break free!
