Richard Smith

15 March - 12 April 2008


The paintings on show at Flowers East are a fine example of Smith's originality. They date from 1970-71, and, as the artist explains, 'are the last of the three-dimensional paintings that were started in 1962-63. They are called the Butterfly Paintings because some have these double planks coming out from the bottom centre. The supports were made by an excellent carpentry firm in Bath. They are, however, very heavy, and that encouraged me to change to the lightKiteformat that occupied me for the next decade or so'.
