A.I.R. Gallery is pleased to announce What Goes, What Stays: New Constructions, a solo exhibition of new work by A.I.R. Alumnae artist, Elisabeth Munro Smith. What Goes, What Stays is about dismantling, discarding and change. Smith focuses on the house in its landscape, and the roads and maps that connect the house to the world beyond. Each of the three large works in the exhibition tells a fragment of a narrative, and follows the theme of transformation and travel across time and space. The narrative unfolds through shifts of color and craftsmanship within the structures, and especially within the materials themselves. Smith has always used a variety of materials – paper, paint, photographs, Mylar, fibers and wood – both milled wood and vines cut from around an old studio. As the narrative progresses, the materials and the compositions themselves are transformed.
