Esther Smith

Esther has always been experimental with the material she uses, adding textured papers, thread, fabric, gold leaf, inks and paint to create a tactile and alluring surface.

Echoes of another time, another place, another life. A whisper of unease of mystery, evoking feelings – stirring memories. Spaces that are unknown yet familiar. A lover of colour, a seductive iridescent shimmer, a flash of metallic.

Recently Esther has been exploring the possibilities of resin: the sometimes unexpected chemical reactions between pigments, room temperature and resin temperature can have a magical outcome – or not! Exciting and terrifying all at once.
