It's hard to tear your eyes away from the geometric energy and storied elements in this new original painting. Spend some time on the mulitudinous, precise, yet free-flowing details. When he was painting "Lovin' the City", it was like an addiction. He LOVED every moment creating the commanding composition and minute details in this work of art. He used nothing but his imagination for reference (HOW does he get the perspective so right?) and he took his time, but was 100% focused on this piece in his studio for weeks and weeks. Frankly, we wondered if he would ever put it down. This painting was worth the wait!
Custom frame shown is included and framed dimensions are 43.5"x 33.5".
Ford Smith's Cityscape Series begins:
Watch Ford Smith as he detours into the city. Which city? Any city, really, as these scenes are created solely in his mind using his near-photographic memory to recall urban elements. He abstracts, orders and conceives a fantastical metropolitan perspective unlike any other.
A skyscraper from Atlanta, a borough from New York, a billboard from Dallas, neon from Times Square, a tower from London... a Ford Smith cityscape is both nostalgic and awe-inspiring.
You might assume a cityscape is the exact opposite of Ford's landscapes, where nature playing the starring role. But there are many similarities that he's reveling in with these metropolitan paintings. Light, reflections, geometry and celestial skies... all descriptions of trademark Ford Smith's distinctive style of landscape interpretations. You know it's Ford Smith as his style resonates clearly within each of these new paintings. As one collector described, "Only Ford Smith could make a city look organic".
