Peter James–Smith: Line of Sight - Art Collector

Peter James–Smith, Hereafter when they come to model Heav'n. Oil on linen, 91 x 61cm.Courtesy: the artist and Bett Gallery, Hobart

The current ongoing series of paintings is an examination of landscape, place and its relation to the history of that place—this relationship arcs like the tracery of a dotted line—forming a bridge that stretches from where we stand looking in a landscape towards the horizon of history, of scientific and cultural knowledge. The works in this series are an attempt to construct meaning at that time/place nexus using texts in white oil paint overlaid on the painted surface of both paintings and sculptures.
