About the Exhibition
It’s Irrelevant Too
The title of Smith's solo exhibition comes from the comparative irrelevance of modern life which one notices when reality is suspended for a moment and all the background noise and visual clutter fades away. The ambiguity and abstraction of Smith's painted surfaces offer a chance for viewers to connect with the experience of contemplation and discovery. Smith has been able to create this space of meditative shelter within his art by calming his own thoughts through his creative process. Ultimately, the exhibition aims to make everything else become irrelevant, even if just for a moment.
