This series of tromp l’oeil paintings is based on scenes I create using matches and debris.
“House Fire” shows a house composed of matches next to a small pile of spent matches – is it ambivalence about home ownership? Or a metaphor how fragile our world is, always on the brink of destruction?
“I did it to myself” is a self-portrait of my self-destructive tendencies. Hair on fire, body burnt and a small bit of potential for either repair or destruction left in one hand.
“Campfire” is mostly about the fun of tromp l’oeil painting and playing with perspective in a two-dimensional image.
This is a series of words that are both positive and negative.
For example the word “Yes” can be the energizing breath that moves one forward, or the excessive surrender of self to outside demands.
“Why?” is both a simple question of motive and a cry of despair.
“Sure” is a way of avoiding having to yes or no to another person, a failure to be fully honest.
Kristie Smith is an artist and graphic designer living in Kirkland. Her work reflects a fascination with landscape, structures, lines, symbol systems, and the attempt to create order in an unstable world.
