Lionel Smit will exhibit a solo exhibition, called Origins, at Rook & Raven, London, from 30 April to 13 June 2015. He will present an installation showing an accumulation of faces through portraiture in large sculptures and paintings, charcoal drawings and bronze heads filling the space of the gallery floor. Smit’s musing primarily captures that of the Cape Malay Community and the human condition.
Smit’s painting Kholiswa won the Viewer’s Choice Award at the BP Portrait Award in 2013, exhibited at the National Portrait Gallery, London. His work is included in prestigious collections including the Standard Chartered Bank and the Laurence Graff Art Collection at the Graff Delaire wine estate.
