In an earlier incarnation Gomez' work showed more realistic scenes of Californians (the homes of the rich from the eyes of the folks who work for them). At one point the artist worked as a live-in nanny. These works, although more abstract in their construction, seem to pursue the same theme--a worthy one.
Smit is known as a painter, performer and creator of video installations. His work references all sorts of popular media--but I, for one, would never call it pop art. There are references to stand-up comedy, comics, music and the front pages of newspapers (soon to be a historical curiosity).
