The West End Gallery is pleased to present “The Color of Somewhere,” a solo exhibition of new works by Blu Smith opening on Saturday, October 19th from 1pm – 4pm. Blu regrets that he is unable to attend the opening reception.
Blu’s subject matter has strong ties to nature and uses organic shapes balanced with cavernous spaces that are filled with light and seem to glow with an atmospheric quality. Typically, Smith begins with broad washes and textures, pulling out and developing 3D shapes within the structures. Using drywall compound he builds up texture and afterwards attempts to resolve the surface with incisive line drawing.
“Abstraction is the vehicle. Color is the fuel. By intertwining these two, my paintings are crossing the border from a specific place to somewhere deep within my memories.” –Blu Smith, 2019
Exhibition continues through October 31st, 2019. All artwork is subject to pre-sale.
