Ian Kingsford Smith's upcoming exhibition called Pilgrimage will be held at the Gaffa Gallery from 6 to 17 February 2014.
This exhibition includes eight paintings (oil on wood panel) and fifteen etchings (intaglio) 42 x 32cm.
The central theme of these works is the variety between our lingering need to narrate our lives, the historic role of myth in comprehending the meaning of the mystery and magic of human experiences and the five elements: earth, water, fire, wind and void.
