You are invited to a public art event at my house in downtown Santa Cruz. As some of you know, I host art shows and this month I am featuring Ed Smiley, an abstract painter. Come by and have some nibbles and drinks and socialize with some great art as conversation pieces!
Ed’s work incorporates acrylic transfer of xerography, newspapers, maps, digitally modified images, digital printing, drawings pastels and other objects combined in various ways with acrylic mediums and paints. The implied movement in time rhythm and tone, paired with his use of color is poetic and elusive, creating multiple layers of meaning and implication.
