When printmaker Rahima Kenner asked sculptor Martin Smith to exhibit with her, she rightly judged their work would be satisfyingly complementary. Kenner draws her inspiration from the writing of 13th- century Arabic poet and polymath Ibn Arabi, and his exploration of the ‘circle of existence’ and pure unsullied love and desire. A translation of Ibn Arabi’s poetry is included in the exhibition so that one can explore further the interface between his and her work. Smith draws his principles from the millennia-old tradition of creating sculpture based on the fluid lines of the human body.

All Kenner’s work is printed on high- quality cotton rag paper, and this combined with her use of unadulterated printing inks results in pure, intense and enduring colours. In My desire is for lightening and its gleam, not for the places and the earth, she paints on the printing plate, creating a unique oil monotype, a one-off print. While I asked them where the travellers rested at noon (VI) (right) is etched and chine colle, more muted and figurative, the speculative nature of the title and subject matter successfully captured by the reflections in the water, a satisfying and dream-like interpretation of the quest for rest and fulfilment at a particular point in life’s long journey.

In Smith’s sculptures the lines and curves he makes hold each piece together, providing containment of, and emphasis to, the natural fissures and markings in the stone he uses.

In A garden amidst fires he uses a complex series of sculpted shapes, folding in on one another to both capture and enhance the natural exuberance of the Gomara stone he has used. And in his delicate piece Full Moon, he exploits the luminescent quality of the stone to create a series of concentric circles with the middle circle set slightly off centre, stating its own interpretation of desire.

The exhibition is at Art Jericho. The gallery is open Tuesday to Sunday. It continues until May 1.
