Gary Smith: 'Industrial Desire'

Refinery II, 2010, acrylic and pigment on canvas, 115 x 240cm

Industrial Desire, an exhibition of new works by Gary Smith, opens next week at M16 Artspace in Canberra. Following his recent exhibition Refined (held in April this year) this series of works presents a continued exploration of the industrial landscape.

The artist has transposed these sites of industrial grunge using an alchemical combination of printing and painting into a body of romantic and enigmatic landscape paintings with hazy focal ambiguity and shimmering with milky opalescent colour.
