Bruce Hixon Smith's paintings have a deep connection to the European still-life tradition; yet there is a contemporary freshness in them.  You see the expressiveness of the brush challenge his photorealistic elements in a very painterly and expressionistic manner, moreover you can see minimalism’s influence and the deliberate stripping away of unnecessary information. Old meets new in his work and to see these pieces in person is to see a dialogue between art worlds of past and present.
