Joe Smernicki graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art in 1973, having gained a High Commendation in his Post- graduate year. Since then he has worked as a teacher and painted in the Tayside area. He currently lives in Montrose and is Head of Expressive Arts in Arbroath Academy.
The inspiration for Joe’s work comes almost exclusively from the coastal and rural environment around his home town of Montrose. The paintings reflect a dual interest. On one hand they are portrayals of a very distinctive and visually rich landscape with its fishing stations, small boats, farm implements and sheds. Equally the paintings are an exploration of colour, tone, shape and line that are brought together in a carefully balanced composition.
The combination of these interests, along with a highly distinctive and analytical style of painting result in works that possess a clarity and impact all of their own. The works show not only a physical location, but capture the feeling and essence of the place.
