Artist: Gary Ernest Smith Title: Barn at Cove Oregon Image Size: 24"w x 18"h. Edition: Artist Hand Signed and Numbered Limited Edition to 30 Medium: Fine Art Giclee on Canvas Select About the Artist: Gary Ernest Smith’s success in contemporary art emanates from a wellspring not always associated with the genre: tradition and values. “The foundation of all my paintings is the rural experience, because that is who I am,” Smith says. “Self-reliance, self-respect and self-worth emergefrom the agricultural experience.” These aspects of Smith's life became the catalyst for his distinctive style.
“I strive for simplicity, seek imaginative colors and use bold forms,” he states. Barn at Cove Oregon and Man in Red, Smith’s introductory fine art giclée editions from the Greenwich Workshop, are perfect examples of the iconic rural vistas and heroic figures he is renowned for. “Of the main themes I deal with, productivity and self-sufficiency seem to recur. I attempt to portray something of the struggles and triumphs of those who work with a sometimes friendly, sometimes harsh land.”
Smith’s paintings are celebrations of personal roots and time-worn memories formed on, and by, a sparse and austere land. These renderings are permanent glimpses of a rapidly changing and ever shrinking way of life. Lauded by critics and collectors alike, Gary Ernest Smith is recognized as one of the important contemporary painters of our time and a significant addition to any fine art collection. Both Barn at Cove Oregon and Man in Red are extremely low edition sizes and the first giclée on canvas editions by this highly sought-after Utah artist.
