In art history books Smither is filed under hard-edge realism as the most prominent painter of this prominent homegrown school.
During his long and prolific career, Michael Duncan Smither has found continuing inspiration from his immediate environment. This has resulted in a large body of work that is synonymous with the New Zealand landscape and culture.
Smither paints coastal and mountain landscapes, family and children, domestic objects, and religious symbols. Michael also has a continued interest in reflections with a large collection of famous colour works that are strongly influenced by his knowledge of music and harmonics. Michael has held many prestigious one-man shows in New Zealand and Australia and has been included in many group exhibitions.
