Original painting in oil on canvas

"This is a painting about Bonnard. I've never seen indecision as a bad thing. That old story of how Picasso derided him for not settling on one colour always fascinated me, and this painting is about pushing that a bit further. What would Bonnard have made of the light and space in America? I can see Bonnard in the landscape there - a painter's vision of the world will get in our head, and we begin to see the world with their vision."

Tim Smith

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.
