An excerpt from the essay Painting, Pleasure, Perversity by Julie Ewington:
“Gemma Smith has hit her sweet spot. Her idiosyncratic embodiment of action through painting takes a perverse pleasure in colour, but as a search for understanding that goes against the grain of painterly convention, the work thwarts the usual expectations around that pleasure. Her free-wheeling painting pushes and pulls at the sheer joy of colour; not so much playing it as it lays, Smith lays colour into play. As Zero clearly shows, Gemma Smith is throwing everything she has at this game. And why not? Everything is at stake, but there is nothing to lose.”
