Just when you thought painting was dead again (yawn), here’s Josh Smith to change your mind and make you sit up straight. Remember he lives and works in NYC, a place where “bad” often means “good,” i.e., “Damn, dude, that is a BAAAADDD painting.” Cunning linguists will note that “ass” is often appended to “bad” (when it means “good”) as an enhancer: “Your girlfriend is bad-ass, man!” At any rate, Josh is one bad-ass painter, and we look forward to seeing what he has up his smock sleeves in the years ahead.
