Jeffrey Smart Tribute

I’ve always loved Jeffery Smart’s work. There seems to be a piercingly truthful element to his architectural paintings. He doesn’t produce this sense of verisimilitude by simply revealing the hidden flaws of our infrastructure, instead he forces us to gaze onto something we have been trained to ignore, highlighting the beauty that nestles within all sad scenes. It’s not a new concept at all, but I think he did it well.

I took this on my way to work in the morning with him in mind.

South Bank, Brisbane
