An Interview with Blythe Smith.
Who and where are you from?
I’m Blythe Smith, a Finnish visual artist from Helsinki, Finland.
What brought you to Art?
Life-long urge and desire to make art and express myself.
What is your driving force?
The need to express myself, communicate my feelings and the things that are meaningful to me.
What kind of work you do and why?
I do painting, collages (of my own paintings only), videos, and comic strips.
Tell us more about your thought process.
My artmaking is based on intuition and material. I work on the basis of material and see what it turns into. I never make plans or sketches. I trust the process, it never fails me. Meanings only emerge while making art; therefore, I think that it’s useless to wait for inspiration.
Please share with us the one modern artist whose work you find Interesting and why?
Oh no, does it have to be just one? I’d like to name two: Eeva Peura, who was my teacher in art school.
Henrik Fab, a great emerging Finnish artist and my fellow student from art school.
