Jan Groover

Gordon Smith

Gordon Smith: The Black Paintings

Though primarily known as a landscape painter, Smith’s complex oeuvre can be characterized as one of continued and varied artistic exploration. Strikingly different from his landscape images, the black paintings have a depth and emotive richness, which reveals itself only with close observation. Through February 4, 2018 / Vancouver Art Gallery.
