Lot description
The work of 25-year-old artist Lucien Smith has become highly-sought after and has made a name for himself with his series of "Rain Paintings", which he produced by peppering raw canvas with an old-fashioned fire extinguisher filled with paint. Playing upon a range of style and concerns, Smith addresses chance and purpose, the spare and saturated as well as the sublime and familiar. Adding humor to the present work, a digital inket on canvas based on his "Rain Paintings", Smith entitled the work "Cats and Dogs"-- an allusion to a torrential downpour.

The present work is the first print of the artist to come to auction. In addition to being signed on the reserve, it is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity and comes complete with the original box.
