Friends Talk - Sarah Tombs: Landscapes in Steel: The Poetic Vision of David Smith

Thu 16th May 2019 6:30PM
Glynn Vivian Art Gallery, Swansea, SA1 5DZ

6.30pm Thursday May 16

In this talk by sculptor, Sarah Tombs the work of David Smith will be examined in its relationship to the American Landscape tradition. ‘Today the landscape may be viewed on a cross country journey from a plane three miles up. Looking down there is no space. The solid earth, its rocks and hills become an endless flat plane. Houses, factories, hard objects, solids become only pattern. Rivers, highways, man-made boundaries are flowing graceful sweeping lines opposed by spots of lakes and squares of fields. The view from space makes solid form appear pattern’– David Smith, Notebook 1951-54.
