Megan Smith

Movement has been the main constant in my existence. It has always felt like the only medicine for the inexplicable torment that I've known for as long as I can remember. Exertion and the peace that follows is an integral part of my creative process. I seek it out, be it physically, mentally, or in some cases emotionally. It has been during these highly energy-charged, yet peaceful and intimate studio times that I have discovered my authenticity. In terms of painting techniques, I have spent a lot of time mastering the medium itself, keeping the technique traditional. Maintaining stellar craftsmanship, while still allowing the paint to "happen" on the canvas. Oil has been my preferred medium thus far, however, the urgency and discipline it takes to work with acrylic is something that challenges me in that I must commit to the concept a lot quicker, versus having it develop over time. Themes I have addressed and hope to explore in the future are mental health, injury, and identity as perceived through Rorschach cards, ideokinesis, mortality, and lastly conservation works that shed light on the atrocities of species endangerment and what that means for the planet and our future on it.

So, my Rorschach series of work thus far has been an interactive series whereby I invite the viewer to “Perceive - what they see” and have their perspectives broken down articulated with the actual Rorschach method (official cards) to reveal the meaning behind their responses / what they see.
