About The Artwork

This is a completely unique and original PMS Mixed Media and Assembled Wall Sculptural painting on reclaimed wood. This is the latest addition in my newest series of assemblage works and is my best selling series to date. This painting and series epitomizes a technique and aesthetic I have been working to perfect over the years and takes them to a new level, both literally and figuratively. Themes in my work of construction, deconstruction, vibrant color, form, texture and decay exist in this piece and have been amplified by a new layer of broken down, assembled pieces of wood, that have been painted and constructed into the piece. This adds a wonderful new element of shadow and an idea of breaking the plane of a conventional canvas and frame. I have continued my obsession with incorporating found and recycled materials and assembled them into what I like to think of as a sculptural painting. It is beautiful and rugged and fun to look at from multiple angles and I have constructed this frame myself, and used broken down old display easel pieces, ripped canvas fragments. Using these personal objects as well as the symbols that pop up in the work is not by accident. This piece is very messy and raw, and is intended to be this way. Hence the title, "Not For The Faint Of Heart". It is definitely an unconventional and raw expression that is a highly geometrical, personal, colorful and textured piece. Note: This painting is painted on assembled, reclaimed wood and fabric and comes uniquely, irregularly framed and hang ready. This painting is signed on the front and includes my Certificate of Authenticity. © 2021 PMS Artwork. All rights reserved.

"My art and life has been a process of moving from darkness into light." - PMS Artist Preston M. Smith (PMS) found himself cross-eyed and with no depth perception as a child. This was the "lens" through which he developed his unique visual perspective of the world, which he now shares as a painter. Before focusing completely on his visual artwork, Preston spent many years developing and expanding his creative mindset by acting professionally, touring and lead singing for a punk/ska band, and writing two novels as well as a collection of poetry and original paintings. All of this experience fed into his ability to access his creative voice and communicate his own experience. Over the years, Preston’s artwork has transitioned from moody pop surrealist paintings into vibrantly colorful, tactile, highly textured and almost "edible" abstract works. His mantra for his abstract work is "color, texture, and beauty", and his work and life have been an expression of moving from darkness into light. Preston’s work has been showcased alongside David Lynch and at the Inaugural Purple Ball for President Obama’s Inauguration in 2009, where he was commissioned to paint 12 portraits of the President. Very recently, his work was selected by a panel of curators as a winner in the 1st 2018 ArtSlant Artprize Showcase. His work has also been on display at the world famous La Luz De Jesus Gallery, and in numerous exhibitions throughout Los Angeles and across the country. Preston's was also recently the subject of a documentary short directed by Tony Lugo entitled "Negativity To Creativity" and his work is in private collections around the world as well in the homes of celebrities such as Ed Harris, Ashley Judd, Josh Lucas, and so forth.
