The Line of Sight exhibition of new works echoes Peter James Smith’s wide interest in science, culture and history. They include representational landscapes and black paintings carrying texts from the geographic ends of Earth (Scotland, Iceland, England, Australia, New Zealand, sub-Antarctic, the Antarctic). Smith’s Line of Sight is an historical, scientific and cultural thread that entwines these geographies.

The arresting thing about his landscapes is his ability to marry his Romantic style of painting - historically a reaction against the scientific rationalisation of nature - with scientific vernacular itself.

All Line of Sight pieces are mounted in found antique frames that have been restored and blackened so as to be simultaneously period and contemporary.
