Hi I’m Anthony Smith Jr. This is a place for me to share my thoughts on why I make my work and what inspires me to create. I usually write about the subjects of the day, my misadventures maintaining an active art practice and the goings-on in my studio. I always close with the soundtrack that’s inspiring me at the moment. There’s always a story behind my works and its often a diffuse and ephemeral one. My works emerge from this abstract narrative space, and thus the name for this site. Please visit my artist website here for galleries of my artwork, my biography, and my professional background.
