I’ve never met David Smith. I’ve never known him and never seen him in exhibitons and never seen him in an exhibition and exposition’s in Turkey or in another country. But i think it would be true about him if there is someone who link’s abstract expressionism to Giacometti and more generally the existantialist literature, i think it is him. At least as being someone who has learned in Arts for more that four years i guess I can say that.
But to be more truthfully, before the thing that goes on in to the sky with the marbling ironing’s of the sculpturing culture, he is more than a one person exhibition. He is more like a one person who always sees the other two person. They are always two persons interlinking the connectivity of the Other. That is a lacanian term i know and i know too that i’m too lazy to check out if that may I use it in the right correalation. But i think to say more trutfully say about him, to my eyes he is more like a inking designer of the sculpting sculpture.
He looks from his sculpture’s own eyes and says: Yes, that’s me. And looks back into it’s eyes and says, of course: That is her. That is, at least what i’m talking about.
