Josh SMITH

Birthplace Japan
Year of birth 1976
Smith works energetically in multiple media including painting, sculpture, ceramics, and printmaking, with a touch that is by turns aggressive, oblique, and playful. His paintings in particular are notable for iterated actions that disregard boundaries between abstraction and representation. Here we present new works from his series of monochromatic paintings first shown last year. The repeated action of applying single colors to panels of uniform size exemplifies his inquiry into painting, which emphasizes the process of making art and looking at it.
