Stephen Smith

I am intrigued by trying to capture the essence of the world around me; this can be facial expression, gestures, or movements.

Working in clay, acrylics, watercolours and charcoal, and sometimes in wire covered in Plaster of Paris, I try to reproduce certain aspects of movement. I am a regular visitor to art galleries, and tend to walk hurriedly from one exhibited item to another. And then suddenly my eyes alight on a figure or a face that excites me. It may be a small sculpture by Degas, or perhaps a simple looking figure by Giacometti. Regular attempts have taught me that often even sculptures which appear uncomplicated can be very hard to copy: I have to assume that only lots of effort will lead to satisfactory results . I would like to scale up to life size figures, but for the moment at least, they have to remain dreams for the future.
