Rayer-Smith's acrylic paintings on raw un-stretched canvas are boldly gestural and do not shy away from color. Beautiful and free, his energetic paintings are unapologetically playful. He says, “There’s a naughty side to all of us and it’s important to maintain that little piece of ourselves that never grows up. Freedom to do what we want and when, and to be where we want and leave when we want, can take a long time to find. Some of us never can.”
