Adam Parker Smith at Blue Sky Project, Dayton, Ohio: August 3 - September 14, 2012.

Adam Parker Smith is a multidisciplinary artist who constructs visual paradoxes and parodies to create aphoristically condensed visual tableaus and phenomenon isolated from the everyday and glorified. Smith’s reimagining of his three-dimensional wall treatment installation This Side of Paradise (I Lost All My Money in the Great Depression and All I Got Was This Room) uses everyday objects such as plastic flowers and fruit, varnished baked goods, elegantly wrapped hard candies, jelly beans, and costume jewelry to create large scale wallpaper patterns.
