Lionel Smit - Morphous

Lionel Smit exhibited a monumental size bronze sculpture in the middle gallery of CIRCA, drawing on his signature portraiture style as well as blue patina.
' Lionel Smit's latest body of work Morphous is a visual and tactile exploration of hybrid identity and its ever emerging and fluctuating nature within South Africa's psycho-social landscape. Currently exploring the possibilities of reflection and duplication through the visual aesthetic of the Rorschach inkblot, Smit addresses the duality of experience and existence encompassed by the mirrored figure of the Cape Malay woman.
