New York based artist Samantha Keely Smith’s multilayered abstract ‘seascapes’ that are not in fact seascapes. In an interview with Never Lazy magazine she described them as:

…not at all real places or even inspired by real places. They are emotional and psychological places. Internal landscapes, if you will. The tidal pull and power of the ocean makes sense to me in terms of expressing these things, and I think that is why some of the work has a feel of water about it. My work speaks of things that are timeless, and I think that for most of us the ocean represents something timeless.
