Welcoming Blu Smith to West End Gallery Victoria
1203 Broad Street, Victoria, B.C.
March 2, 2019 until March 14, 2019
West End Gallery is proud to present internationally acclaimed artist Blu Smith in Victoria. Presenting a collection of new contemporary abstract landscapes Blu’s paintings are inspired by nature and the organic shapes found within it. Blu’s process typically begins with broad washes and textures; he then adds definition by pulling out and developing three-dimensional shapes. Blu finishes each canvas by resolving the surface with more definitive drawing and layering. The resulting abstracted landscapes are aglow with an atmospheric light that only Blu can harness. "My work is about the diversity of two different states and the transitions between the two. The real interest lies in bridging the gap between structure and space, foreground and background." -Blu Smith. Join us for an artist reception Saturday March 2 from 1-4pm. All artwork is subject to pre-sale.
