Ray Smith (Brownsville, U.S.A. 1959), a painter who since the mid-eighties has a peculiar reflection on and from painting. An artist who believes in the trade and has developed in his 40 years of experience, has been dedicated to the experimentation of what he can do as a creator from his own body and the reach of it, which has led to the discovery of the materials that he uses and mixes, which serve as a vehicle to create compositions in which he works until the concept or idea, the gesture and the line or what emerges and surprises him, is discovered through experimentation , accident, luck, chance, and the passing of time spent in each piece that is presented at the time of culmination without consciously pursuing it.
