Phillip K. Smith III

A new light and space installation by Philip K. Smith III on view summer 2020.

Jun 6 - Oct 4, 2020

Southern California artist Phillip K. Smith III creates experiential art that highlights changes in perception as related to light, color, time, and space. Using reflection—varying translucency and shifting color—the artist’s interior installations provide richly hued environments that respond to the spatial and atmospheric conditions. As with other artists of the Light and Space movement, Smith transforms spaces to expand the sensorial experience of viewers. This exhibition presents a new large-scale work and working models for proposed installations that incorporate Smith’s precisely paced program of changing colors.  

Organized by the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art. Curated by Jennifer McCabe, director and chief curator. The new works are commissioned by SMoCA for this exhibition.
