Liz Whiteman Smith WLTM Solo show of figurative oil paintings

In an age of super connectivity Liz Whiteman Smith has codified sets and sub-sets of internet users. Individuals who tweet and share with the web community; the intimacy of which highlights their isolation.

The paintings have a cool detachment, redolent of the Bechers’ water towers, their complex mass standing out from the empty space around them. The grids though codified do not need to be view as a whole. The serial repetition serves to highlight their singularity and draws you to an individual. 

Whiteman Smith is a figurative painter whose starting point is strangers, living in remote areas. Her graphic clarity emphasises the disjointed nature of the photo-face that we send out into the world, trusting it to communicate our message.

WLTM is her first solo exhibition, and brings together her explorations of lonely individuals like faces in a book of stamps their repetition increases their power.
