Ed Smith: Though much is taken, much abides...
Ed Smith’s drawings and bronze sculptures are primarily involved with the mythic and heroic aspects of the Artist and man, reminding the viewer how to retain humanity in a world where oftentimes the wrong individuals are idealized. Smith’s sculptures attempt to bring into focus what we overlook as well as to create a sense of historical continuity with the great art of the past. His drawings, depicting beggars of Venice, echo the tragedy of the homeless and depict characters very similar to Artists, being outsiders beyond the scope of conventions. Smith is a Guggenheim Fellow in Sculpture and Drawing and an Associate of the Royal British Society of Sculptors. He holds degrees from Columbia University and Pratt Institute, and is a professor of art at Marist College.
