Borlase Smart: A Life in Art
A comprehensive, full-colour publication, available from 6th September which will include images and details of all works in the exhibition. The publication will also feature a fascinating reappraisal of the artist's oeuvre.
Was Borlase Smart pushing the boundaries of what was accepted as the 'norm' within the definitions of traditional art? The fact that he was a great supporter of the young 'moderns' in St Ives, much to the chagrin of many established artists of the day, is well documented...
Traditional art had long been underpinned by the logic of perspective and an attempt to reproduce an illusion of visible reality. His journey towards abstraction was not a sudden, radical one, but more a subtle movement to a 'modern' style in which he found his forté, a style which was eagerly accepted by the mainstream, exhibited at the Paris Salon, the Royal Academy and countless other prestigious institutions.
