There are a few days left to catch the exhibit of Gordon Smith paintings at Equinox Gallery.
I've never had the honor to meet Gordon Smith, but by all accounts he is an engaged, passionate, generous man. I love the range of his work, from the underbrush-tangle-reflection paintings like the one he's done for Canada House in London, to the Black Paintings that come out of his experiences in the Second World War, to new pieces experimenting with photographic and digital images under paint. He's a Vancouver art icon.
I highly recommend going to see the current exhibit at Equinox Gallery's cool warehouse space. It's hugely inspiring to see all the work that Gordon has produced in the past year and half. The man is in his mid-90's!! Black Dog Publishing has also produced a lovely monograph of his work.
Here's a lovely article from last year on his evolution and spirit.
The exhibit closes Oct 25th. Go see the show, and tell me which pieces are your favourites!
