▪️Howard Smith: 1+1+1…Paintings and Works on Paper, 23 May - 23 June 2018
🔻Observations: dynamic arrangements that transmute in relation to the viewer’s perspective
▪️This is the artist’s 21st solo exhibition, encompassing his substantial and vibrant body of work. By harnessing light, expression and pigments, he fuses the material and sublime. Smith’s watercolors are a study in method and pattern. The artist carefully applies and reapplies paint to build and vary the depth of color. The direction, velocity, and intensity of his brushstrokes have changed frequently during his career. His staccato marks transport viewers to a plane enveloped in vivid color. Nowadays, Smith pushes spatial limits by drastically varying the size of his paintings.
