Biography from Gallery Paule Anglim:
Dean Smith produces drawings that are abstract, yet make reference to organic growth and the representation of 3-dimensional space.  Delicate compositions make up of tiny lines, so fine and regimented in their perfect repetition, it seems impossible that they might be produced, tiny mark after tiny mark, by hand.  Whether made from pencil strokes or fine touches of a fluorescent pen, Dean Smith’s drawings seem to breathe their own life, living somewhere between geometry and botany.
