Krista Louise Smith

There is a feeling of suspension in Krista Louis Smith’s cloud paintings. The artist offers escapism, suggesting abundant space to levitate among the clouds. Her palette of pale milkshake pinks and French cream whites soothe the senses with slight variations that physically absorb one’s gaze. Each painting offers an eternal state of buoyancy through floating, organoid shapes with womblike associations. Using veils of semi-transparent oils, her barely perceptible shapes are about feelings of healing and escape. Emitting a quiet sense of calm, Smith’s paintings are not merely meant to be viewed but also felt, always privileging experience over interpretation.
