The work of Martin Smith

In his latest exhibition Martin Smith further investigates the formal language of the vessel and the way that it can both contain a space and define a place. He analyses the poetic qualities of mathematics and geometry and develops new approaches to surface illusion. Using his previous show with Marsden Woo Gallery (Red and Black with Blue and Yellow, 2015) and its exploration of the archetype of the vase as a jumping-off point, Smith drops the scale of this new body of work to that of the cup, mug or beaker for an exploration of the geometric intersection of cylinders and cubes.
