Original paining in oil on canvas.

"This is one of the Eternity paintings. I like the idea of a tension between the nature of eternity and ephemeral blossom. The painting was also an exploration of Daphne and Apollo, and the process of transformation. Surprisingly there are very few references to eternity in Shakespeare, which is where the title comes from."

Tim Smith's handling of paint is reminiscent of Frank Auerbach - intense, gestural and thickly applied with bold impasto marks and colours. Nature, humanity, textures, patterns  and cultural motifs all jostle for space in his work.

A clamorous celebration of all things becomes a simple appreciation of form and colour; the way in which the painterly supersedes the subject evokes also the spirit of Jasper Johns. Smith draws from history, experience, fiction and fantasy to reflect his kaleidoscopic cultural vision.
