Whitney Lewis-Smith- The Overview

April 18th - May 12th, 2024

Opening Reception: Thursday, April 18th, 5-7pm and Saturday April 20th from 12-3pm with an Artist Talk at 1pm

Kostuik Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition of new photographs; heliogravure editions, and copper etchings by Canadian artist Whitney Lewis-Smith entitled “The Overview”.

“This body of work began as an investigation into space travel and the ways in which it is changing us. A select few human beings have been gifted with seeing the whole Earth from space, back dropped by the blackness of the universe. For each of those people the experiences have been unique, but the perspectives they acquired have been collectively expansive. Breaking the bonds of Earth has proven to be a more important leap than the technology it took to get there. While human evolution as a result of travelling further into space seems inevitable, the universe beyond our earthly origins remains, for most, the heavens; a last frontier where we can dream freely about what it means to exist. After the loss of my father this year the ideas in this body of work and their confluence have offered a tangible sense of contact with the connectedness of all things.” – Whitney Lewis-Smith
