Alexis Smith at Honor Fraser
Honor Fraser Gallery is pleased to announce Alexis Smith: The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, an exhibition of an installation by Alexis Smith with Amy Gerstler and a selection of recent collages by Smith. The exhibition will be on view from July 5 through August 27, 2016.
Using an enigmatic blend of surrealism, familiarity, and humor that might be considered uniquely Californian, Smith collects commonplace objects, images, and texts and complicates our understanding of them through revealing juxtapositions. Wordplay and puns abound, acting as gateways to subtler observations that incorporate nuanced appropriations from history, literature, film, and pop culture. Across Smith’s body of work, and likewise in The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, her astute pairings and modifications call out for interpretation but settle on no obvious meaning. This is Smith’s second exhibition with the gallery; a previous collaboration between Smith and Gerstler, Past Lives(1989), was on view at Honor Fraser Gallery in 2013. Initially exhibited in 2000, this is the first time since 2003 that The Sorcerer’s Apprentice will be on view. A selection of Smith’s recent collages will accompany the installation.
