"The Arezzo Ramp Bicycle Race" by Jeffrey Smart
Here we go again! Go back and have a gander at my brilliant, but underappreciated painting, “REVANQUISHED” and compare it to this intriguing urban landscape. Both pieces feature a curving industrial overpass under an ominous sky. Both pieces speak to “the express rape of the landscape”, but in a colorful and eye-catching way. Here are two artists, from different countries and different generations, responding and reporting in a very similar fashion. I have never seen Jeff’s work before and I am amazed by our similarities. It’s not just bonza, its bewdy bonza!
