Kristian Smith presents ‘Hunters in the Snow’ (22 Feb - 31 March 2021), a new solo exhibition of photography, collage and painting at Rake of Colts to launch the new gallery next week. Taking its title from Pieter Bruegel the Elder's 1565 painting, Smith's new exhibition is suggestive of a propelling back and forth through time, accompanied by a strong sense of the historical period in which we now find ourselves.
Kristian Smith works in observational and found photography, collage, drawing and painting. Her work is informed by a fascination with commercial advertising imagery and its re-coding of original intended use, in works which often articulate resonances between different centuries of visual consumption.
Hunters in the Snow can be viewed at rakeofcolts.co.uk
The exhibition is supported by the National Lottery through Creative Scotland.
