WENDY SMITH

Illumination: An Exhibition of Fine Art Photography
April 22 - May 13, 2014
Reception: Thursday May 1, 2014 6-8 PM

Wendy Smith’s graceful photography meshes current scenes with the elegance and inevitability of a timeless image. Smith’s astute eye covers all genres, from rural landscape to portraiture to urban architecture. Each photograph is crisply rendered, capturing the elusive texture of an autumn mist, or the split-second movement of grass swaying in the wind rather than the blur. The carefully tempered palette favors subtle colors and the play between simple black and white. Compositionally, Smith follows a few bold lines, keeps the space uncluttered, and stays between close-up and middle distance. Her scenes are clear and close enough to touch. Somewhere between the restrained palette and the close perspective, which lends her subject a stately air, Smith conjures the majesty of history, touching on art history while remaining rooted in the present day.  Each image possesses a delicate, enticing artistic quality that captures the attention and delights the eye.

Born in Sydney, Australia and currently living outside of Paris, France, Wendy Smith recently received Better Photography Magazine's Silver Award for photographic excellence.
