ABOUT THE WORK
"Ever have those moments when nature brings you to a halt? My GF and I were struck by a car on the outskirts of Jenner, CA on New Year’s Eve in 2021. The sun had already set, and we were hopeful for the new year that was about to begin after lockdown.
The light was virtually gone for the day—save some deep indigo, slivers of reds, oranges, and golds—swirled on the horizon line on the edge of the ocean. It was gorgeous. We both snapped a dozen pictures and in the next few seconds, the light was gone. It was a no-brainer for me to see what would come from shifting the shapes and colors into a collage.
This is how the Found Series was born. It carried me along with my feelings of being Lost & Found, how I found myself Reaching for more, and then finally settling into that deep-felt sense of being Found.
When creating these pieces, I was stuck emotionally and found what I didn’t know I was looking for. I took breaks and incorporated a sense of playfulness into the work by saturating the colors for a new perspective."—Deena Smith
