ANDRE SMITS / ARTIST IN THE WORLD
The Artist In The World
Pop Up show at Soapbox Gallery depicts approximately 130 artists in their studios amongst their work. Opening Dec 6, 6-10pm
The Photos, taken from behind so that faces are not shown, minimize the personalities of the artists themselves. This in turn, gives greater value to the work on its own terms and speaks to the notion that the artist is the mere vehicle for creation, the hand of some deeper invisible force.
The group was assembled organically. Artists provided a roadmap to follow, establishing a network of creativity.In this exhibit the portraits taken on the last trip in New York will be presented alongside a wallpainting, “a home tattoo”. This painting will be a collaboration with artist Elise Tak.Opening from December 6 from 6-10 pm.Participating artists are invited to take home their image from 9 pm.
