Wayne Smith, 5 Short Holidays

Gallery 16 is excited to announce its fourth exhibition with artist Wayne Smith. His exhibition 5 Short Holidays continues his interest in scanner-based imagery, repetitive drawing techniques, and working with found printed matter. The show will feature a new group of digital prints, collage works with imagery layered between glass and ink and pencil drawings on pieces of wood.  The show will also include a text-based installation piece that foregrounds his interest in writing/collecting seemingly random and often humorous titles for nonexistent projects. The title “5 Short Holidays” playfully refers to his decision to present work in these various styles. The title is also shared with an EP by Smith’s ongoing music project Aero-Mic’d to be released during the run of the show.

We made an online catalog in conjunction to the exhibition, please take a look!

Wayne Smith is a visual and sound artist who lives and works in San Francisco. Working in a variety of media including drawing, installation and video, his work has been shown locally and internationally. In 2007, he collaborated with Berlin-based artist D-L Alvarez on a sound and video installation inspired by Joan Didion’s “The White Album” that took place at Derek Eller Gallery, NY. A video installation at Exile Gallery in Berlin, Germany was shown as part of the “Psychometry” exhibition in 2009.
