IAN KINGSFORD-SMITH

Out From Down Under & Beyond: Fine Art From Australia and New Zealand
May 19 – June 9, 2015
Reception: Thursday, May 21, 2015 6-8 PM

Ian Kingsford-Smith sees himself as a visual storyteller. “In my art practice,” he says, “history, personal history, memory, family records, ambitions, fantasy, dreams, mythology and spirituality” all combine to create enigmatic narratives. They are detailed but do not tell one explicit story, rather they tap into the viewer’s imagination and evoke a multitude of possible storylines. Each of Kingsford-Smith’s images evokes a larger story and meaning through his ability to play subtly with color, line and scale. In his black-and-white etchings, a finely developed sense of line gives each work a precise balance, although the situations being illustrated can assume an almost magical, hallucinatory character. In his paintings, intense reds, greens, blues and oranges add a level of energy.

Working in a variety of media, from etchings, to acrylics and oils on wood, to linocuts, Ian Kingsford-Smith says that employing such a range of materials gives him the opportunity to realize his vision and bring it vividly to life for the viewer.
