Willie Wayne Smith at Cerealart
Portrait of the artist, Willie Wayne Smith
Willie Wayne Smith
“it is Like a Simile”
Cerealart Project Room
May 2-July 3, 2008
I didn't get much of a feel for Willie Wayne Smith at the Cerealart Project Room (anymore I find that I don't have much of an opinion until I see at least two exhibitions of an aritist's work). I believe I liked what I saw, but what I saw was crazy; irking my sensibilities, a bit like when someone scraps their long nails up against a chalkboard. In other words, even though everything was in really bad taste it was beautifully so. . . If you don't believe me take this shell frame around this painting, named Wings of Fire' to the bank. While I can't claim to find it pretty I like it:
Also, these paintings are pretty big, this one being roughly the size of me.
