LODI: Recent Paintings by Natalie Smith

SCA Contemporary is pleased to announce the work of Natalie Smith opening on April 11, 2014.

The fifteen paintings included in Natalie Smith's exhibition take a hunter-gatherer approach to image making. Each painting is a sort of mash-up of references of pop culture, the applied arts, littered with art historical inferences. The resulting paintings are neither figuration nor abstraction. Repeating motifs such as stenciled geometric shapes, images of nature, textile patterns, grids, and gestural mark-making are presented in flat planes of color and form reference a stacked like physicality of the layered materials which these paintings grew out of. The paintings originate from a practice of building abstraction by assembling and the collage of found matrials. These works present the act of painting the found and familitiar as a gateway to the unknown.

Gallery Hours are:

Thursdays & Fridays 12-5pm and by appointment.Please call 505.228-3749 for more information
