Contemporary UK artist, Jesse Leroy Smith’s paintings explore the subtlety of colour and touch, produced by thin washes of oils, inks and watercolours. He has explored many different forms of mark making such as pouring, burning, sanding, carving and staining. He is noted for his use of inks, watercolour and also thinned, oil paints used in a manner similar to watercolour. For a period while his children were young, they were the subject of much of his work, saying as much and possibly more about the universality of childhood as they did about the children themselves.
Based in Cornwall, as an artist, collaborator and curator, Jesse Leroy Smith has, for the past decade, been a driving force behind many of South West England’s most important art shows and projects.

* Generally speaking Guide Prices are provided as an indication of each seller's minimum expectation, i.e. 'The Reserve'. They are not necessarily figures which a property will sell for and may change at any time prior to the auction. Virtually every property will be offered subject to a Reserve (a figure below which the Auctioneer cannot sell the property during the auction) which we expect will be set within the Guide Range or no more than 10% above a single figure Guide.
