Dylan Garrett Smith 1.JPG

Dylan Garrett Smith is an artist/printmaker whose work is a product of his views regarding humanity’s relationships with - and the continually growing distance from - the natural world.  Combining concepts of occultism, ecology, and memento mori, Smith stresses the importance of the cycle of birth-bloom-decay and the necessity of solitude in nature.  Ashes, chalk-lead and ink on black cotton rag paper serve as the primary media to make his images, while reinforcing the natural process of life, death, and rebirth.

Smith earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts from Pratt Institute of Art in Brooklyn, NY and currently lives and creates in the Lehigh Valley of Pennsylvania.
