It is a great pleasure to present the work of Hiroe Komai and Colin Smith at JGM GALLERY. We are showing the work of two quite different artists in material approach, but with closer consideration, there is a synergy in Smith’s and Komai’s relationship to subject and specifically object.

About

In his recent paintings (2019) Colin has deliberately abstracted a series of works representing rows of bold, colourful fabric bolts. While retaining his signature colour palette and command of oil paint, the works have a luminescent patina. These more abstract works are a delightful diversion against Smith’s paintings of more detailed renderings of various, luscious items of clothing hanging in wardrobes that thrill the senses while retaining the essence of subject.

Hiroe Komai is exhibiting a body of work she made in 2013. Her meticulous bronze renderings of everyday, utilitarian objects - tools and books, nails and pencils that Hiroe has used in her art practice over the years, and very much loved, have been immortalised in her distinctive life size works. The process and care in her approach make these monuments to her making and are an honouring of her artistic life.
