A Theory of Relative Happiness was inspired by a note written by Albert Einstein. In 1922 he wrote, “A calm and modest life brings more happiness than the pursuit of success combined with constant restlessness.

For many years my paintings have been a dedicated effort in providing a calm and modest space.  A place of quiet and stillness.  If for a moment we allow ourselves to enter into that stillness our natural happiness will present itself. It’s already there. Our happiness. It just needs a quiet moment to be experienced. – Vicki Smith

Vicki Smith, a sought-after Canadian painter, is known for her paintings of female figures that explore the possibilities and limitations of gravity.  Often shown suspended in dark air or rippling water, twisted and upside-down, falling into and out of the picture plane, these figures are often so precariously placed upon the canvas that they threaten to slip away or dissolve. Though rarely grounded, they are always balanced.

Vicki Smith studied fine art at the Ontario College of Art. She lives and works in Toronto.
