【Solo Exhibition】Bisco Smith「 TIME AND SPACE 」
Artist | Bisco Smith
Title | “TIME AND SPACE”
AND COLLECTION Contemporary Art is pleased to present “TIME AND SPACE,” Bisco Smith’s first solo exhibition in Japan, at Tokyo and Osaka.
Time is limited, make the most. Space is infinite, anything is possible.
My work is about capturing time, freezing moments, expressing my internal state or reflecting the external world, while at the same time, writing the guidelines and mental notes to help carve the path forward through space, the unknowns living life as an artist, and processing our existence as humans on our beautiful, chaotic, forever changing planet.
For these exhibitions, I created two separate bodies of work: Time, which will be shown in Osaka, and Space, to be exhibited in Tokyo. Together these collections create the title, Time and Space. The Time collection is painted in my classic black and white aesthetic which is where it all began. If time is the measurement between two points, this is an ode to the beginning. The Space collection is created using a black, white, and metallic palette representing the changes ahead, the light in the moment, and the reflections of the past.
Aesthetically, the artwork connects to my roots as a graffiti writer and music maker, while keeping the intentions based in positive thinking, motivation, inspiration, and encouragement as notes to self, but also words that others may find moving and motivating as well.
The past is written, the future is unknown, the present is now.
Thanks for spending some moments with the work.
