Soul Gatherer: The Primal Art of Richard C. Smith

Richard C. Smith’s marvellous images are a revelation. They grow out of an ancient Earth that most of us can only guess at. Densely realised, intense and direct, his work belongs to that pantheistic place where even inanimate matter has life force. In this domain humans cling together in the face of some unknowable, but ever-present world-spirit. In his drawings he is a most subtle and beguiling colourist, while his sculptures are grittily direct. Smith is an important artist who is a fellow voyager with the likes of William Blake, Anselm Boix-Vives, Miguel Hernandez and Asger Jorn.

60 pages, hardcover, with an essay by Colin Rhodes.
