Quote about Pearl's Diner

"Using a cut-out animation technique, [Lynn] Smith skilfully mixes bits and pieces from magazines and adds some paints and sketches of her own to create an astonishingly detailed portrait of a group of lonely diner regulars and their devoted waitress. Narrative trajectory becomes unnecessary in her hands: Smith's collage style, subtly nuanced and highly evocative, says it all."
-- Wyndham Wise (source)
