“The colours – subtly nuanced, delicately laid down and juxtaposed in often startling ways – are deeply seductive.” Michael Kimmelman on Richard Smith
The exhibition Richard Smith : Reunion on at the Broadway Gallery in Letchworth is a beauty.
I am still ruminating on Richard Smith’s masterly use of colour. He has an uncanny ability to place a warm lavender exquisitely next to a deep azure and a carmine red perfectly with a salmon pink. The way he does it makes you stop and marvel. There is very real sense of optimism and pleasure conveyed through the colours. Studying the works of this capacious colorist is a real education.
