Using text, sculpture and painting, Smith’s recent artwork focuses on the sensual and psychedelic qualities of the data array: its ecstatic feeling of possibility, contrasted with its harder demands upon our participation and/or submission. This work was developed during a recent residency at the studio of Sol LeWitt in Umbria, Italy, and equally draws upon physicality of the region and LeWitt’s dedication to the interface points between the human and conceptual.
LOVERALLOVERALLOVERAL will include works made from digitally printed fabrics, die-cut metal, cast concrete and Plasticine.
