“I have an illustration of the Duomo in Florence. It’s the largest brick dome ever constructed. I find it incredible that they spent just short of 600 years building the thing, and worked on the bottom part FOR TWO HUNDRED YEARS before holding a competition to design the dome which they didn’t even know how to build. On an infinitesimal scale, that’s sort of how I feel with my work.”

“When I am working on a show I start to gather objects and images that speak to me or may have something to say. My studio becomes immersed in the aesthetic and energy I will be exploring in my paintings and other works. The process is a bit like meditation. The space around you will influence the work you create.”

“I like to stay focused and work on crafting Paul Anthony Smith. My work is a product of who I am and how I’ve come to see the world. I like to set the mood. I like to have my marking utensils and books in close proximity to where I’m working so I can grab what I need at the moment of flux.”

“I like schedule and always work in schedule. I’m always frustrated about my finished work. But soon I recover and think about new pieces. It takes some time and I will go back to modify or improve the old works.”

“My approach to my work is very personal in the sense that I try to solve my own problems. It’s probably the easiest way to create – if there’s something I want, or if there is something that exists that I am unhappy with, I design a solution. I already have one customer (myself) and a design teacher once told me if you can sell to one person, you can sell to 100.”
