CAMEOS – BEC SMITH
Tuesday 20th November – Sunday 2nd December 2018
Tuesday 20th November 6pm
We are delighted to have special guest speaker Michelle Glew-Ross open the show.
After her successful first showing at Saint Cloche as part of the Jet Set group show in 2017, Bec Smith is back with a larger body of work in her forthcoming solo exhibition, Cameos.
“There are fossils of seashells high in the Himalayas; what was and what is are different things.”― Rebecca Solnit, A Field Guide to Getting Lost
In her trademark geometric style and alluring palette of colours, Bec explores the transient and ephemeral nature of identity, and the idea that life’s long journey is one of transition from one place to another; unwitting, slow and uncontrollable, like a fragile continental drift. These paintings symbolise the dynamics of a changing identity when mixed with parenthood, work, and creativity, in a modern world. A version of oneself, which it is impermanent, as much as we proclaim to know it or capture it. These paintings are ‘cameos’.
Bec Smith is a Melbourne-based artist who has practiced art and design in both Australia and overseas for over 20 years. She has always stayed particularly interested in abstract, non-objective, and colourfield paintings from the early part of the last century – a natural extension of a designer’s grounding in the early design language of the Bauhaus.
