19 Apr – 27 May: Anton Smit & Lionel Smit
Anton Smit (father) is one of South Africa’s most important sculptors and has exhibited widely, both locally and internationally. His works are represented in major private as well as public collections in SA, Europe and the USA.
For Lionel Smit (son) “painting is like an energy release and at that moment in time the work becomes alive – a paused action.” He can relate to Jackson Pollock’s “Action Painting” - the controlled release of energy onto the canvas but “unlike automatism there are definite thought processes to digest and manipulate whilst working on a piece”.
The Gallery is open 10h00 - 17h00.
