WTF Gallery is pleased to announce an installation of multi-media art exhibition by Jorge Carlos Smith. The exhibition is comprised of paintings, neon signs, photographs and installations – all made in 2013. Smith’s works depicts his personal interpretation and perception in a dialogue between the artist and his fantasy, vague memory which are obliviously overlapping the reality.
"The unclear. The blurred. The misinterpreted. Clashing culture. The wrong. Lost in Translation, and lost in Time. Meanings, the intentional or accidental, reality and fantasy is explored through a series of work in multiple media representing different interpretations, perceptions, and significance of everyday phenomena. It explores also the clarity of the thoughts and ideas, perhaps once held firm, even for a brief second, actual, derived or fantasized, and poses questions on what was and is still real, through the passage of time and the fading of memory."
The exhibition insert artist’s hint of awkward, obscure, playful and whimsical approach within the clashing culture that he perceived. It creates relationship with the audiences that bridges the absence of reality and imagination, allowing the viewer to interpret the show however they would like to.
Jorge Carlos Smith, is a hotelier by trade. Also an avid collector of vinyl, cook, occasional dj, designer and closet artist.  Born in Mozambique with ancestral links in Macau, raised in Portugal and England, conjures up a mix of painting, drawing, neon woks, recorded sound and scent boxes  - and offers a playful mix of objects that offer an interplay with the viewer in a most personal collection of ideas, thoughts and memories.
