In this powerful body of work, Smit explores the formation of identity through portraiture on canvas and bronze deconstructions - often of monumental proportions - for which he is renowned.

About

This exhibition comes to London following Lionel Smit’s acclaimed solo exhibition at the Didrichsen Art Museum in Helsinki where it was seen by more than 10 000 visitors. Faces of Identity is a powerful body of work that explores themes of identity through portraiture on canvas and bronze deconstructions. With its ubiquity but also its uniqueness, the human face offers an endless source of study. Smit’s work accentuates facial characteristics through bold swathes of colour and brush techniques, highly-textured bronzes and vivid patinas which result in the arresting work, often of monumental proportions, for which he is renowned.
