George Smith has developed a highly focussed but relaxed way of using paint. Initially George was wholly absorbed by tactile processes and created large scale works using his hands as his main tools. More recently George works on mid scale canvases using a brush to apply paint once in while throughout the day. He will often sit next to a canvas for a long time before making a mark. But when this happens it appears highly spontaneous and unpressured by an over consideration of the result.
