Artist Statement

A cloud-like tunnel of fabricated steel, Smith’s sculpture works as a study on perspective. From a distance, the brightly colored structure becomes an abstraction of the environment it rests in, but upon closer inspection the viewer is invited inside to see the world through the sculpture’s neon filter.
