Rolin Smith

Structure and Chaos is an exhibition of geometric and abstract expressions designed by artist Rolin Smith to differentiate the concepts of perfection vs. instability. Having PTSD and OCD since childhood, art and creating were one of Smith's first outlets to express himself and process the complexities of his person. With these works He contrasts the internal pressure of perfectionism with his ruminations on life’s uncertainties, self-doubt and trauma; each painting a physical release from those emotions, leaving the viewer to their own interpretation.
