FRONT ART DISPLAY
MONUMENTAL FRAGMENT (1 of 6) by Lionel Smit
The title of the sculpture at Cape Sands is Monumental Fragment and the medium is resin & fibreglass, which has been hand finished with automotive paint.
Lionel Smit was born in 1982 in Pretoria, South Africa and is best known for his contemporary portraiture executed through monumental canvases and sculptures. Perhaps more than anything else, Lionel Smit’s art is defined by a deeply rooted symbiotic relationship between sculpture and painting.
Each of Lionel Smit’s works offers us an entry point into the variety and richness that lies beneath every face we encounter in life, whether applied in bronze or in paint. The blending of techniques across genres is a display of Smit’s work in multiple media, all bearing visible overlap.
