gemma smith recently completed her latest show at sarah cottier gallery. the show featured paintings and sculptural works that were filled with colour. the sculptures or ‘boulders’ as they were titled, featured acrylic sheets of different colours attached together to form a multicoloured rock that changes tone as you move around it. the paintings carried on the faceted theme on a two-dimensional scale. each one featured different tones arranged in a sparkly crystal like pattern. the colours have been applied in solids and as washes to gives each canvas a depth.
