Sam Smyth Sam Smyth is a UK based artist best known for his hard-edged geometric paintings and collages. Drawing on the ideas of minimalist and post-painterly abstract painting from the 60s and 70s, Samâ€™s work tends towards being formally reductive but with a strong focus on colour interaction. Sam is drawn to abstraction as a free vehicle for aesthetic exploration, and as an opportunity to consider the physical properties of light and the act of looking. Working in series, Sam employs formal organising principles to his work; often pursuing a geometric framework across several works. This can be seen in his square compositions and also in various works in 2 x 3 and 3 x 4 format.

Yamen O'Donnell After working for a decade at big tech companies around Seattle, Yamen woke up one day with an overwhelming urge to create on his own terms. When it came time to figure out a medium, nothing was more natural than applying his knack for computer software and engineering, so he taught himself fractal software and began his new art project, Complicated Reality. There, Yamen uses specialized software to explore the boundary between procedural chaos and artistic intent, while writing futurist short stories and transhumanist poetry. He hopes to show that regardless of how complicated the tools become, there's always room for human expression.

INTERVIEW As part of your oil paintings collection 'The Diver Collection', how unique is your process, your style and the choice of the medium on creating the movement, pose, colors of the body, sky, and water? To paint with oil is to slow down and appreciate what has come before us and take the time to what may appear ahead of us. The Masters used oil and it's been around for thousands of years. That's partly the appeal to me, and so is it's buttery consistency and texture. I like that oil painting has such a long history in the story of humanity and that it moves much slower than the rest of the modern world and as a medium, allows for reflection, unlike for example acrylic. Acrylic is harsh and fast, it's plastic. The pause in oil painting is what appeals to me. When I paint one of my diver I think about she must be feeling at that stage of the dive. I also look at timelessness. My figures don't look like 2019 models, the proportions are elongated or muscular or strangely positioned and sometimes they look more like fruits than women. I use colors and geometry to express the mood and to make the viewer look at them in ways that we may not have looked at before. Traditional standards of beauty are of no interest to me.

INTERVIEW Of all the art in this Diver Collection, which piece is your personal favorite? "Meet Me by the Pool. Wear Pink." She's intriguing to me. What is she looking at? What is your arm reaching for? Her body is shaped like a bowl of fruits. She's enigmatic.

INTERVIEW What is your view about creativity vs innovation as an artist?
