Artwork from Kevin Smith of Smithbuilt

This is a series I did last year with found images. By an odd turn of events, I came to own an enormous collection of years of family photos from a family I have never met. The photos span decades, and are all taken around the Bay Area. Through the photos,  I can watch the family grow up, graduate, take vacations, change houses. Some of the characters have become favorites of mine. The woman in this picture  is a favorite.

They are sublimation dye prints mounted on wood and covered in resin. I have experimented with hanging them outside. I hope to introduce a series this year that can we used in a somewhat protected outdoor condition.
