"To paint not the thing but the effect it produces." Mallarme

Plum Neasmith's starting point for a painting is often an experience of place. She does not work directly in front of a subject but creates from many sources, frequently distant in time. It is a process concerned with puncturing the fiction of what appears to be real to reveal something new or highlight what is taken for granted or otherwise dismissed.
