    About Neal Ambrose-Smith

    Statement, August 2020 Show
    I tend to be inspired by good things: James Ensor, de Kooning, Mitchell, Quick-to-See. Perhaps I’ll murmur from Pollock to Mehretu. Even stealing a riff or 2 from Squeak makes my day. What I cannot do is extricate myself from current events, the bad to worse scenarios that affect all peoples and their dogs. Perhaps our dogs are as tired of us as we are of our 4 walls. Fox, CNN, tabloids and advertising blur the borders of the canvas, fencing in the paint, cripes! Indigenous painting with colonial borders. Fortunately, I can get my Guston on, paint the talking heads and put them on the walls. Alter-Native paintings in alternative facts.

    "I picked up the New York Magazine in my hotel and flipped through landing on an article about President Trump. Not an amazing coincidence to be sure, but the title of the article was over 100 inches long. A perfect border for my painting of another sinking human full of nonsense." NAS
