HISTORIES REPRISED from art and science
by Peter James Smith
In this exhibition, Smith overlays his painted landscapes with texts and mathematical equations to create a visual language that honours the classical scientific research process of building the future incrementally from the past.
This process naturally extends to the three dimensional surface and the mix of painting, photography and sculpture in one unified exhibition provides a complete aesthetic experience that draws on history and culture.
The study of science, like art, has always been regarded as embracing a deeper quest for meaning in the world and the two subjects come together harmoniously in HISTORIES REPRISED from art and science.
