Emma Helbrough, author and editor
“stunning and generous work… I want it everywhere”
Joanna King, Curator
"Simon M Smith’s works combine intricate elements of collage with finely painted details to create a unique visual language. His paintings have a mesmerising quality drawing the viewer in layer after layer. Simon’s works are accessible on so many levels: they are breathtakingly beautiful as decorative objects, but upon closer inspection one can’t help but get drawn into a dream-like world of colours and shapes created by the artist."
“Simon M Smith is, in my view, one of the very best practitioners of his generation”
John Gilboy, Orange Street Gallery
