  • “[Emily Mae Smith] depicts a twilit mythic realm… densely symbolic, sharp-edged scenes, which achieve their meticulous illusionism thanks to Smith’s keen graphic sensibility…. Smith’s enigmatic paintings, which allude to folklore and “Fantasia” alike, are rendered beautifully, and mingle seamlessly, in a provocative meta-mystery.”
    –– Johanna Fateman
