Presented by THE CAT STREET GALLERY
16 October – 8 November 2014
50 Tung Street, Sheung Wan, Hong Kong
Lionel Smit will exhibit a solo exhibition, called Contronym, at The Cat Street Gallery, Hong Kong from 16 October to 8 November 2014. The exhibition showcases Smit’s ability to shape, layer, and incise his figures across a multitude of media. The portraiture paintings and sculptures speak of hybridity made manifest in the body of the Cape Malay woman, who personifies that multifarious quality so deeply entrenched in what it means to be human.
Following success at Art Taipei Art Fair in Taiwan and Art Central Art Fair 2015, Hong Kong. This will be his first solo exhibition with The Cat Street Gallery.
