Aline Smithson: Portrait as Autobiography

  • 03 Nov 2015
  • 31 Dec 2015
  • Wall Space Gallery

Wall space gallery is pleased to showcase the work of photographic artist Aline Smithson and celebrate the release of her long awaited monograph, Self & Others: Portrait as Autobiography. Aline’s roots in traditional painting and portraiture is the background for her

latest body of work, Revisiting Beauty. In the footsteps of classical portraiture, her images filled with vibrant rich color and the simple beauty of the young women sitting before her brings to mind Kusakabe Kimbei’s stunning hand painted portraits of young Japanese women. It is the connection to her subject that has Aline standing out from the often-overflowing

world of portrait photographers. We will show a selection of highlighted works from many of Alines’ portrait series: Arrangement in Green & Black (Portrait of the Photographer’s Mother), Revisiting Beauty and a selection of hand painted silver gelatin portraits.

Artist Reception – Friday November 6th, 6 – 8pm

Exhibition Preview Friday October 30th, 5-8pm during the Funk Zone Art Walk
