Exhibition of work by Allison Smith

Allison immerses herself in the history and heritage of places and communities. What has gone before? What made communities thrive before technological advancement? Using paint to re-imagine how an area looks, she considers whether communities were closer, were people happier and less materialistic?

Whilst investigating woodlands and coastlines she contemplates our relationship with nature. In the busy modern world of today she poses the question to the viewer, 'does nature hold the key to our well-being in times of stress and disease?'

Conflicting with her love of the natural world is her interest in engineering and industry. This stems from her father's engineering background. Visits to Dalzell Steel Plant and Raeburn Brick have added to her deep respect in the ability to use nature and bend it to the will of mankind all the while being aware that the effects of this contrast with the environment and the natural world.

Allison graduated in 2017 with a BA(Hons) in Contemporary Art Practice. Her first solo exhibition here at the East Kilbride Arts Centre consists of all these strands and uses the medium of paint to convey Mother Nature's power to envelop all that lies within her grasp.

Allison uses colour to express her own response to place, dependent on mood, weather and nature whilst juxtaposing work derived from engineering and industry.
