David Smith at the Art Squall

Thursday, November 27th, 2014

Having recently relocated to Ramsgate, Kent, I was delighted to finally enjoy the annual Art Squall this summer. Its various offerings included the smallest theatre in the world, which my children found hilarious, a ukulele jukebox and local artists open studios. However what really caught my eye was the exhibition by artist David Smith whose repetitive drawings and paintings reminded me of sketches I used to make back at art school.  His text spoke of seeking a tension between order and chaos, I think when you make very ordered work by hand you have to accept the element of imperfection and chaos that is unavoidable and I felt these works sat very poetically on the border line.  They got me excited about drawing again and I hope to post some of my new sketches soon.
