Smart Objects: Jan Gatewood 'Alas! Mocktails to Infinity'
Art being shown at the moment tends to lean towards the austere or purposefully otherworldly or fantastical. As has been reiterated, and felt, countless times, we are experiencing a truly unprecedented moment, therefore there is no prescriptive way that we should, or indeed can, enjoy the things we are used to. With this in mind, when our consumption of art is predominantly scrolling through Art World Instagram or listing sites, it is always refreshing when something defiantly stands out; that's why I am excited to talk about a recent solo exhibition of works by artist Jan Gatewood at Los Angeles gallery Smart Objects.
