Vanessa Smith‘s work definitely swings towards to the eerie end of the spectrum, and I love that. The way she combines her own paintings with elements of photography feels fresh and unexpected, full of life but also voyeuristic.
The interiors in Smith’s paintings bring together the mysterious and the mundane, whether it be a deserted cafe or dimly-lit living room, these spaces are imbued with an eerie tension. Devoid of people, there are suggestions of life or habitation – a smoking cigarette, a glowing light, a door left ajar – all hint at a fractured narrative.
