Artist Bio and Statement: Tremain Smith’s art is about expressing inner realities in the physical form of painting. The lines, shapes and colors become mappings of the unseen as she seeks to visually manifest access to what is internal. She lets the process take over, guiding and absorbing her. This quote by artist Agnes Martin has guided her for over 20 years: “If you live by inspiration then you do what comes to you.” She strives for freedom.

Smith has four works in the permanent collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Her work is in corporate and private collections across the country. She has had dozens of solo exhibitions in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Scottsdale, Maine, Delaware, Florida and Hawaii. Group exhibitions include SOFA Chicago, Art Miami, the Painted Bride, the

Philadelphia Art Alliance, and the USArtists American Fine Art Show. She was an artist-in- residence at the McColl Center for Visual Art in 2004.

Smith has been reviewed extensively including coverage by the Philadelphia Inquirer, the Chicago Tribune and the LA Weekly. Her work is included in Encaustic Art in the Twenty-First Century by Anne Lee & E. Ashley Rooney published by Schiffer Publishing, The Art of Encaustic Painting Contemporary Expression in the Ancient Medium of Pigmented Wax published by Watson-Guptill, and in the art journal New American Paintings. Smith studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, Tyler School of Art, Carnegie-Mellon University and the University of Pennsylvania. She has a Teaching Artist Certificate from the University of the Arts.
