Dwight Smith
Bradenton, Florida

Dwight Smith depicts commonplace objects with a sense of playfulness and humor. His watercolor still life paintings appear conventional in their soft colors and composed compositions, but upon further observation the juxtaposition of unrelated items make for delightfully surprising combinations and comparisons. This transformation of the everyday, and strong graphic style, lend the work a pop feel. However, pop art is generally cool and ironic. Instead, there is a familiar and comforting sense of kitsch and Americana in Dwight’s subjects. In a similar fashion to the work of American artist Wayne Thiebaud, Dwight paints food and sweets of the American appetite. Doughnuts, hotdogs, and lollipops are captured in all of their potent delight. He plays with scale and composition to bring out a sense of the absurd, but ultimately his goal is to make the viewer smile.

I'm so glad you enjoy the watercolor and puffins that love to chit chat. I can't take full creative credit for it was my wife's idea. I hope you and family enjoy the Holiday Seasons.

My husband and I love the whimsy of the piece. We've seen all 3 of the world's species of puffins and would love to chat with any of them on a party line.

Dwight Smith 1/3/2017 | 3:48 PM

Thank you Vinalrae. I hope you and family had a great Holiday Season.

V Brame 1/1/2017 | 2:39 PM

I purchased "Cabernet Sauvignon." Love it. Love all your work. That little bird makes me feel happy :) Thank you.

Dwight Smith 7/1/2016 | 2:35 PM

Thank you for your comment Ms. Wittner. I loved painting Daydreaming. I suppose I was inspired from our dog.

C Wittner 7/1/2016 | 11:20 AM

I am so happy that you are Ugallery's featured artist. I love "Daydreaming." It is a wonderful piece of art. I smile every time I walk into my kitchen and see it on the wall.
