Description

Paul Anthony Smith’s oil-on-canvas paintings and unique picotages on pigment print explore the artist’s autobiography, as well as issues of identity and the African Diaspora. In his picotage images, which Smith creates using a ceramic tool to pick away at the surface material of photographic prints — obscuring or altering his subjects’ face and skin and alluding to tribal masks and scarification — he achieves textures whose surfaces appear almost iridescent.
