Shinique Smith: Spectrums
David Castillo Gallery is proud to present Spectrums, a solo exhibition by Shinique Smith, of new mixed-media paintings and sculptures.
Spectrums is a conversation with the artist’s upbringing in non-Western and New Age spiritual thought during the late 1970s and early 1980s. Auric fields of color recall mandalas. Twine dimples plush surfaces into crystalline structures, writing flows like vapors of incense. Circles and circular clusters radiate like third eyes, tracking viewers across a series of arresting paintings in ink, acrylic, fabric, and collage on canvas over wood panels.
