Josh Smith’s (b. 1976) work experiments freely with abstraction, figuration, and the expressive possibilities of painting. These paintings were made during the COVID-19 pandemic and New York City’s mandatory quarantine. Depicted is Smith’s neighborhood as he experienced it during early morning and nighttime walks within a locked-down city.
