    Trained extensively in traditional painting techniques and methods, Harris Smith has been a successful professional artist for over 40 years. With qualifications and experience in secondary art education, the artist has studied Australian painting throughout life and using nature as an important source has evolved a personal approach to subject matter which is both sensual and evocative.

    The artist is Melbourne based but has travelled extensively throughout Australia studying the land forms and the light and is inspired by the haunting beauty of the Australian landscape which often carries a lingering presence of the past. Harris Smith draws on a rich minefield of imagery from valleys, pastoral, coastal, towns and cities and keenly observes the human interaction within these environments. Harris Smith responds to these environments with a skilled and sensitive treatment of form, light and colour. With reference to some aspects of early impressionists, the artist adds emphasis through selective vision - enhancing and dramatising to create a lyrical comment and strong sense of place.

    The recipient of many prizes and awards including Castlemaine, Camberwell, Brighton and Box Hill Rotary Art Exhibitions, the artist has exhibited in solo and group exhibitions nationally since 1978 and is represented in many private and some civic collections in Australia and overseas.
