In his monumentally scaled paintings, Firth-Smith focuses on the shifting figure of the horizon which operates as both the subject and metaphorical description of his work. The horizon is a richly symbolic thing, crucially located in terms of how the world is represented and conceptualised. It is what separates us from the rest of the universe. It is from this central axis—awesome seam in the world's fabric—that the various elements of Firth-Smith's work unfold.
