March 2014 First Friday Artist: Ed Smiley

February 15, 2015

Ed Smiley is returning to show is paintings at TrendSetter Boutique for the second time! We featured his work in April of 2014, and we enjoyed him and his work so much that we decided to invite him back again. So if you missed the first show, you have a second chance to see Ed's fantastic paintings. The opening event is Friday, March 6, 2015 from 6:00 to 9:00 PM. Ed's work will be on display through March 28.

About The Artist

In Ed's words:

I explore the interconnectedness of things, for I believe that everything is connected. I work with the paradoxical collisions between forms made in paint and and forms made with distorted and scanned images of fabric, maps, and computer generated fractals embedded using direct acrylic transfer.

I believe in things that can't easily be put into words. 

I believe in an art that cannot be made into images of known things that can easily be put into words. 

I believe in the elusive, the poetic, in ecstasy and joy.
