The feeling I get when I see Derick Smith’s paintings is instant Joy. The paintings are so alive with color and movement, like skipping instead of walking. I feel the same way about la Eyeworks, The frames are incredible pieces of art on their own but when they are worn or in action they really do come to life. The main goal for this Uncensored Visons really for me was to capture both ends of the art experience. I want to showcase the artwork as well as the reaction that looking at something so alive can bring. I think of it as perhaps like returning the favor back to the pieces art that have given me so much Joy.
