Mid C20th-Early C21st - Painting
Richard Smith - Intersections
Flowers Gallery is delighted to present an exhibition of works by British artist Richard Smith CBE (1931-2016). Recognised as one of the most influential painters of his generation, Smith’s work of five decades evades precise categorisation, with an expansive abstract painterly style very much his own.
The exhibition coincides with the launch of a major new publication Richard Smith: Artworks 1954-2013, with essays by David Alan Mellor, Chris Stephens, Alex Massouras and Martin Harrison. This new study is intended to reignite discourse around this diverse artist, whose impressive oeuvre is fertile territory for a new reassessment. Also concurrently on view is Richard Smith: Kites at the Edge Art Centre, University of Bath until 17 December, 2022.
This exhibition presents a survey of works from 1965 to 2009, focusing on intersections of colour, form and material construction.
