Welcome Gallery Artist Ali Smith

Mindy Solomon is happy to welcome painter Ali Smith (Long Beach, California) to the Gallery. Smith uses the canvas as an open space of exploration, an empty landscape which serves as a starting point for investigation into abstract terrains.

Smith states that her work intends to “illustrate the existential plight of finding new and personal meaning within the field of abstract painting.” Her recurring visual trope of “Rococoesque abundance…performs a celebratory reassertion of the endless possibilities available to painters.”

Smith weaves fleeting thoughts, moments of time, the fine lines between fact and fiction, and subjective desires within her canvases, which in turn present the hopeful attitude of the artist.

Smith received her MFA from California State University, Long Beach, and has since had solo exhibitions in Mew York, Houston, and Los Angeles. She has been included in numerous group shows, including those at the Laguna Art Museum, Irvine Fine Arts Center, Center for the Arts, Eagle Rock, and Riverside Museum (California). Her work is included in the collections of the Laguna Art Museum (CA), Frederick R. Weisman Foundation (CA), and Progressive (OH).

Smith is also represented at the Mark Moore Gallery, a beautiful gallery filled with a wide array of multi-media, 2D and 3D works in Culver City, CA.
