Description Deep down Im guessing most people have some sort of fear of the woods and wilderness. The general fear of the unknown is what it boils down to. Not just in the woods but life in general. Walking around alone in a strange city, the buildings as trees, and the people as wild animals. Some of theses animals are harmless earthworms, and caterpillars, while others are ferocious beasts smelling the fresh meat. Survival of the fittest in this jungle of metal and concrete. It can be dark and scary, but once you know your way around you can be more equipped to fend off theses beast who roam the night.
Chris Smith, Plymouth Member Since February 2007 Artist Statement Hello all, my name is Chris Smith and I grew up in a small Minnesota town of about 2000 people. I have traveled to many places in these United States, such as Texas, Georgia, the Carolinas, The Dakotas, and many more. I have a degree in portrait photography and have a Movie Review blog called "The Rockport Review". You can check it out at www.Rockportfilm.com. I have also done a lot of stop motion animation, that I have posted on my YouTube Channel.
The influences for my art work come from music, films, art & design and life itself. I am obsessive about movies, independent and otherwise. My personal heroes are David Lynch, David Fincher, W. Eugene Smith, Steven Soderbergh, and all those people who create. Dreams are necessary in a world of chaos.
