Opening Reception – Recluse

April 25, 2019

Art Gym Denver is excited to announce Recluse by Brady Smith in the Common Space Gallery with an opening reception April 25 from 5 – 8PM.

What is likely driven from an unhealthy obsession with isolation, Brady Smith’s series Recluse examines recluses from history and the background of their confinement. When discussing the body of work, Smith said, “The drawings, which are made with graphite, gouache and other materials, explore the work of the individual recluses, the places they chose to isolate themselves, and the circumstances of their reclusion.” Wanting the portraits to mirror the lives and works of the people portrayed, he let these elements drive the concepts and materials used in the pieces. This allows for further discussion to happen in the drawings about the nature of reclusion and whether or not the history of these people is true. The recluses included in the series are Emily Dickinson, Christopher Knight, Agnes Martin, Marcel Proust, J. D. Salinger, and Henry David Thoreau.
