Smith’s approach is quite direct when he comes to making a painting. He paints flat, his canvas supported on the floor by plastic cups, he applies paint using a household plant sprayer then runs over it with a vacuum cleaner to manipulate the surface.
'I like to keep the paintings off balance, it's all about timing, fear and confidence. You know when it's coming.'
