Lionel Smit Obscura Artist Reception 

The Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA), North Miami will open its spring season with the presentation of “Obscura.” The exhibition by South African Contemporary Artist Lionel Smit will be his first solo museum exhibition in the U.S. and will run from March 8 – May 6, 2018. Smit is recognized globally for his monumentally scaled portraitures depicted through mixed media.

In “Obscura,” Smit fuses gestural brushstrokes, splashed and splattered paint, and captivating pigments of color with a realistic representation of the heads and faces of his subjects on a large scale. The bold surfaces of Smit’s paintings are echoed in the clay form, which he uses to create bronze and resin portraiture sculptures. These sculptures also demonstrate the blend of naturalism and abstract expressionism, with modeled and textured surfaces.
