Artist Spotlight: Samantha Keely Smith


New York-based artist Samantha Keely Smith draws inspiration from instincts and emotions. In her artist statement, Smith explains, "The artwork represents a striving to reconcile the inner world of instinct and emotions, with an external world that is both beautiful and hostile in its natural grandeur. It is an attempt to map the place where these worlds intersect. The paintings are an investigation of the struggle between a variety of human impulses: impulses that are as necessary as they are contradictory, and which therefore constantly undermine our psychic and social coherence even as they endow us with vitality, soul, and life."

I love how her work feels so timeless. See more of Samantha's work here.
