PS1309 Vanishing Point, Oil on Canvas, 61 x 51cm email
Very interesting show in the Cue B Gallery in Brockley by the artist Paul Smith. Entitled Vanishing Points, the show is inspired by landscape as well as texts such as Richard Mabey’s The Unofficial Countyside, Graham Swift’s Waterland and JG Ballard’s Drowned World. The gallery says of Smith’s show: “The exhibition documents Paul Smith’s interest in the lost and the found, what is passing out of memory and what is synthesized as trace in the landscape. Exploring lost places and capturing the essence of a moment of abandonment has been part of his practice since his earliest work photographing the post industrial landcape of the North East”
