Signed by artist on rear end paper upside down. "From his Palm Desert, California studio, Philip K. Smith III creates light-based work that draws upon ideas of space, form, color, light + shadow, environment, and change. Building upon the foundation of work established by artists such as Turrell, Irwin, Brancusi, Noland, and others, Smith continually distills his concepts to create intensely physical, seemingly ephemeral, and highly meditative works that affect perception, breath, and pace of experience. This publication explores Smith's five large-scale installations throughout Southern California from beach to desert with essays by Desert X curator Neville Wakefield and Cultural Programs at the National Academy of Sciences director J.D. Talasek." --jacket.
