In art history books Smither is filed under hard - edge realism as the most prominent painter of this prominent home grown school.

During his long and prolific career Michael 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.

 He 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.
