Look at any of Gary Ernest Smith’s figurative works, then look at Two Barns. Notice how there’s more than a bit of Thomas Hart Benton in his farm pictures, more than a bit of Georgia O’Keeffe in his buildings, and more than a bit of Maynard Dixon in his landscapes. Smith’s career is an exercise in Western realism and abstraction, a distillation of Western masters he has forged into his own style.
