Ken Smith: New Works
Ken Smith: New Works
Flinders Lane Gallery
11th August 2020 - 5th September 2020
Smith's latest exhibition presents a series of completed paintings alongside a selection of key preliminary sketches necessary for their construction. As a suite they continue the artist's enduring interest in his surroundings on the Mornington Peninsula, but more crucially they offer a rare glimpse into the technical processes of this esteemed landscape painter. From drawings, colour studies, iPad prints to final resolved acrylic works, Smith latest exhibition serves as a masterclass into the complex and technically nuanced processes so characteristic of his oeuvre.
Smith was Lecturer in Drawing at MADA, Monash University's Faculty of Art Design and Architecture until 2014. Most recently Smith has been a finalist in the Fleurieu Art Prize (2018), the Tattersall's Club Landscape Art Prize (2015, 2016), the John Leslie Art Prize (2016) and shortlisted for the Geelong Acquisitive Print Awards (2015). In 2018 Smith undertook a Ballinglen Arts Foundation Residency in Ireland, where he was able to spend time in the Irish landscape, allowing it to influence his practice. In 2012 he was awarded the Rick Amor Drawing Prize for his work In The Light Of History I. He has previously been shortlisted for the Eutick Memorial Still Life Award, finalist in the Heysen Prize, and multiple finalist in the Jacaranda Acquisitive Art Award.
His work is in the collections of the Ballinglen Arts Foundation, Ireland, Artbank, Leeuwin Estate, Arbitration Commission, and the collection of the Commonwealth Bank, Art Gallery of Ballarat, Bundaberg Arts Centre, Devonport Gallery and Arts Centre, Grafton Regional Gallery, and Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery. In 2014 the Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery showcased a major solo exhibition of Ken's work, spanning three decades of painting the Mornington Peninsula seaside.
