something as living as nature

I want to create surfaces that have the energy and life of natural surfaces that become as fascinating and infinitely explorable as the natural world.

The artist, Matthew Smith (1879-1959) studied under Henri Matisse in Paris. Matisse encouraged him to intensify his vision of the natural world. The result, he said, was not a conventional description of nature, but an attempt to….”create something as living as nature, so that it itself may continue to live.”
