Nicola Smith’s work is situated in the referential dialogue between cinema and painting. Her delicate oil paintings are a mixture of infatuation and biography drawn from photographic and moving imagery. Smith studies each film – the subtleties of the characters and the shifts in light between frames – pulling out the catalyst moment of the narrative and reworking it. Smith takes each frame as a separate image and interrogates its complexities, often painting the same scene multiple times to illustrate subtle shifts.
