Dennis Smith Carney

Smith Carney was born in Albuquerque, New Mexico and spent his childhood surrounded by the colorful landscape of northern New Mexico. Fascination with the beauty and the variety of nature kindled Carney’s desire to create. He later moved to Texas and attended the University of North Texas where he received a BFA in Advertising Art.  The key qualities of the art of Smith Carney are palpable creativity and austere evolution, while constantly moving forward to create something new. It is this methodology of creating, discarding and reinventing that creates something new and distinctive. These elements of erosion and change are always resident in Carney’s work. Subtle nuances of serendipity, poised tone and composed surface quality create impact and a distinctive style as the artist continues to reinvent his artwork.
