Martin Smith at Logan Art Gallery

Martin Smith is now showing ‘Dodging chainsaws’ at Logan Art Gallery.

Included among five new exhibitions at the gallery, the retrospective exhibition covers the past 20 years of Smiths art told through text, images, and photographs.

Smith’s technique of cutting and erasing surface pigments to create a subtext, or over-writing his images in a prosaic hand form the textural tone of redolent with sincerity or playfully ironic. The personal stories cut out of the images or reassembled letters represent a chapter or memory of Smiths life.
