About Gary

Gary Smith

South African artist Gary Bruce Smith works in pastel, oil and acrylic, as well as producing sculpture in cement fondue, steel and fiber glass.

Besides absorbing inspiration from contemporary art history, Gary's works have their source in revelations from the mystics like Meister Eckhardt and from Zen Buddhism, Shamanism and Western Philosophers, particularly Martin Heidegger.

Gary is currently working on a series of paintings that incorporate sculptural forms. He is also reading for his PhD on The Dark Gods. Gary runs the Eastside Art Gallery as part of his studio in Port Alfred (Eastern Cape, South Africa) and gives private art tuition in painting and sculpture.

Post-Secular Art
Gary has assimilated his inspiration to produce what he terms Post-Secular art. Essentially he works from the conviction that the contemporary world has lost its experimental contact with reality. The term Post-Secular refers to the direction that new consciousness, art and world culture as a whole, is attempting to move towards. The Post-Secular Age poses the greatest challenge that art has ever encountered. Lost between the modern and what-is-to-come, art has the full responsibility of developing new modes of consciousness.
