there is a feature/interview about my work in the new issue of NeverLazy Magazine. (pgs 36- 45)
"New York-based fine artist Samantha Keely Smith paints expressive emotional and psychological landscapes ridden with power, hostility and beauty. yet there is also a certain fragility to the abstract scenes she creates, as they appear to evoke unstable, tormented feelings as well as echo the symbolic destruction of the human soul. We spoke to the artist who shares her experience of the industry so far, her move from figurative to abstract painting, and her ultimate desire to make a connection with the viewer through her magnetic work."
