We are thrilled to present Threshold by acclaimed Sydney artist, Ben Smith — his first solo exhibition at Nanda\Hobbs Contemporary. Join Ben Smith for opening drinks on Thursday 4 May, 6-8pm.
It is an exhibition that shines a powerful light on Smith's passionate discourse of the place of the figurative in paint. He delves into moments of personal reflection and ubiquitous, often amusing observations of the world we inhabit. In doing so, the artist questions all that we hold dear—the material and the ethereal. The paintings are a vision of a dreamlike state. Smith reminds us of the time when our subconscious rules our head, where mystery plays with reality—that time when we are truly ourselves.
Threshold runs until 19 May, 2017.
