Josh Smith at LUHRING AUGUSTINE BUSHWICK
Veröffentlicht am 28.09.2013
Josh Smith plays a delicate balance between the "original" and the rehearsed or repeated. Making multiple versions of a theme, and developing new directions from slight mutations of production, the artist embodies the humanistic derivation of craft through his handmade reproductions. This tropical flavored installation includes a series of palm tree paintings, and paint splattered shelves of table top sized ceramic sculptures. Ironically, the work presents a highly developed facility of lyrical de-skilling.
