From my release notes for the February 2006 program:

Mr. Smithe’s choice to work in a manner that reflects his sense of wonder in simple geometry and perspective and their ability to convey tangible ideas and emotions implies a kind of visual alchemy that illuminates the simplicity of these things with a fractal awareness. So it is that these drawings are intended as a poetic response to our complex and often chaotic visual culture.
