Ready to Hang
This is a completely unique and original abstract oil painting on canvas. It represents an emotional flag for the resistance to injustice. It was painted with a swarm of color, energy and texture. The texture gives the piece amazing depth and the appearance of sunken cracks in the facade. The painting is part of a series of bold structures of color and texture, that are extremely emotive. In this piece, structures appear and fade in and out of each other. This one is unique in that it has darker, deeper and richer tones than other paintings in this series. The colors also fade into the background more completely and are accented by violent streaks of color that overlap the fading colors, giving this piece a real energy and depth. The juxtaposition of smoothness and texture, and bright color with deep color makes this piece exciting to look at from any angle. It also shines in the light and is tempts you to touch the various textures.
Note: This painting is painted on canvas and does not come framed, however the sides of the canvas are painted black and therefore framing is not necessary, but up to the collector's preference. It is hang ready.
This painting is signed on the front and includes my Certificate of Authenticity.

Artist Preston M. Smith (PMS) found himself cross-eyed and with no depth perception as a child. This was the "lens" through which he developed his unique visual perspective of the world, which he now shares as a painter. Preston’s work has transitioned from moody pop surrealist paintings into vibrantly colorful, tactile, highly textured and almost "edible"abstract works. His mantra for his abstract work is "color, texture, and beauty", and his work and life have been an expression of moving from darkness into light. Preston’s work has been showcased alongside David Lynch and at the Inaugural Purple Ball for President Obama’s Inauguration in 2009, where he was commissioned to paint 12 portraits of the President. Very recently his work was selected by a panel of curators as a winner in the 1st 2018 ArtSlant Artprize Showcase. His work has also been on display at the world famous La Luz De Jesus Gallery, and in numerous exhibitions throughout Los Angeles and across the country. Preston's was also recently the subject of a documentary short directed by Tony Lugo entitled "Negativity To Creativity" and his work is in private collections around the world as well in the homes of celebrities such as Ed Harris, Ashley Judd, Josh Lucas, and so forth.
