Undiscovered American Genius in Modern Art

What are "Aura View" portraits?

Expressionist figures viewed through abstract Color field auras of sensuality, emotion, and spirit.

Smarkusz painted what we call "Aura View" portraits, from the mid-1960s until the time of his death in 1974.  They are strange curious renditions of individuals and pairs, engaged in sensual activities or poses, presented as abstract human figurations, immersed within Color field auras of fantasy, mysticism, and emotion.
