Ryan Jacob Smith’s Pulsating Paintings

Ryan Jacob Smith lives and works in Portland, Oregon. With a limited color palette he explores the living and the dead, the growing and the decaying. His subjects seem to pulse as vein like matter spreads across them. Are his skulls rotting or forming? Are his branching vein structures an extension of life or an ever advancing impairment? Questions like this allow the viewer to reflect on creation and destruction.
