"Anne Smith's art consists of seemingly infinite expansions of a few simple themes: the circus, the park, farm animals, the objects of childhood reappear, often interchangable motifs, in endless variation. Although the vision is simple in its scope, the expressive meand develop and evolve into ever more subtly realized configurations. These images are suggestive of a precariously maintained world of innoscence, an inner space of oneness and freedom. It seems, on the surface, a realm of fantasy." Essay by Arthur Adamson.
