“Gambone’s film is a gift to longtime admirers of Leon Polk Smith’s paintings, and even more so to viewers who are new to his work or struggle with non-objective art. The artist tells his own story – from his birth in Oklahoma’s Indian Territory to his final years in New York City – bringing his work to life along the way. …With the patience of a good teacher and a rare ability to convey the joy, intellectual engagement, and physical process of painting, he takes viewers on an enlightening journey through his artistic evolution.” – Suzanne Muchnic, former arts writer for the Los Angeles Times, correspondent to ARTnews and author of “Odd Man In: Norton Simon and the Pursuit of Culture” and "Helen Lundeberg: Poetry Space Silence”)
