In his second exhibit with Sager Braudis Gallery, painter Seth Smith presents a continuation of his “paintings of places.” Skillful color-work and painterly treatment of postcard-familiar scenes push Smith’s work beyond straightforward depiction and allow his viewers to thoroughly imagine each space. While a few figures appear, the emphasis is on the constructed environments of Americans on vacation. From the placement of an umbrella on the beach, to the plating of a seaside dinner, to the arrangement of a camper-site, the narrative into which we get a peek with each composition is one of people affecting their surroundings and seeking gratification through the pursuit of leisure.
