Original drawing in pencil on paper.

A faded memory, a banal moment that once held significance falls out of reach, it is only when we look at a photograph that we half recall this moment, those people and that place.. The work of Kevin Smith surrounds these memories. Beautifully detailed drawings are sympathetic to the found photographic references they portray. It is a lost memory restored by sentimental hands. These scenes that had lain forgotten now breathe new life. Smith's meticulous attention to detail cares for the subjects. In “Billy’s Do, May 67”, it could be our own family that this couple represent, staring out of their frame with tender eyes. The piece signifies familiarity and a rebirth of the fading past whilst encouraging us to look at the narrative and re-examine our own experience.
