Paul Smith

We are delighted to introduce Paul Smith’s works to our continuing Autumn Exhibition.

Paul Smith is a London based artist from Sunderland. His work is predominantly narrative abstract painting and collage exploring an interest in what is lost from memory and how that loss is “synthesized as trace in the landscape”. Paul has exhibited widely in the UK, most recently a solo exhibition “Are You Leaving for the Country?’ at Muse Gallery on Portobello Road, London. He was part of the touring Contemporary British Painting Prize in 2016 and in 2018 a residency with Staithes Studios Gallery in North Yorkshire was followed by a solo exhibition ‘The Staithes Paintings’ and later that year ‘Painting the Anthropocene’ at One Paved Court, Richmond. Other notable exhibitions include The ING Discerning Eye (2017, 2016), Griffin Art Prize (2015), Neo Art Prize (2015) and solo shows ‘This is This’ at Don’t Walk Walk Gallery in Deal (2018), ‘Noise Rings’ at Farnham Maltings (2016) and ‘The Ice House’ at Northampton’s The Sanctuary Gallery (2014). Previous selected group exhibitions include ‘Supernature’, The Auxilliary, Middlesbrough (2019), ‘Two Fold’, Oceans Apart, OA Studios, Salford (2019), ‘Twice as Nice’ and ‘Small Worlds’ PS Mirabel, Manchester (2018, 2017), ‘Painting (Now)’ Studio 1 Gallery, London (2017) and ZAP Open, Zeitgeist Arts Projects, London (2014, 2013).
