Patrick Smith

Painter and Printmaker

A fundamental aspect of Smith's practice, regarding the sea and landscape paintings, centres on plein air work. Going out into the field, executing paintings rapidly on the spot on location. 

These paintings form a kind of muscle memory which in turn filters back into the studio work. Where copious amounts of found images and Patrick's own photographs act as totems to be plundered, these become synthesized into the work on display. 

No particular painting is copied from a single image they are more landscapes of the mind where poetry and an unfolding process is allowed full reign and you the viewer are co-opted into the images final resolution. 

Over the past ten years Smith's practice has centred around exhibitions in London culminating with shows through Bridgegate Gallery Battersea and being represented by Highgate Contemporary. Now located in the beautiful village of Sheriff Hutton at the foot of the Howardian Hills. Smith's work is exploring the forming forces of nature and how landscape is perceived through the senses. In 2017 Patrick established his house gallery which is open to the public (by appointment only).

Smith's work can be found in many private and public collections in this country and abroad. Part of Smith's practice is also education, formerly in York College, York St John's University and Harrogate College. Patrick now teaches in the private sector across the north of England
