Beadwork on Suede mounted to Panel
7" X 5" X 1 1/2"
Today beading is expressed differently from person to person. Balancing the shape, texture, and color of his materials, Smith reveres beadwork as a fine art form. Smith's intricate, sculptural designs are sewn into found leather and suede skins. His invented patterns dance on shimmering surfaces exemplifying his immense talent of all things beauty. The movement is a conversation between the materials, how they are placed, and the space in-between.
