BRETT SMITH: LIFE
MAY 16 - JULY 11, 2015
OPENING RECEPTION: FRIDAY, MAY 15, 7-9PM
Sandler Hudson Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition by South African artist, Brett Smith. Interested in bridging aesthetic sensibilities with the natural world, Smith’s body of new work illuminates life cycle and seasonal change.
In an installation encompassing both his large paper and canvas works, this self-taught artist invites a playful exploration of LIFE in all its’ abstraction, shifting patterns and subconscious decisions. Brilliant colors overlap and emphasize negative space in these energetic and sophisticated pieces. Lines direct the eye and navigate the surface to reveal remarkable relationships and inspired tensions.
Brett Smith is an artist living and working in Atlanta, GA. He has spent the last four years working on his evolving study of LIFE in a series of paintings and drawings. Smith was included in the Rising Stars show at MOCA GA (2009) and has been represented by Sandler Hudson Gallery since 2010.
