In a world flooded with uncertainty, we so often question our sense of belonging and identity, constantly moving between states of being. The internationally renowned sculptor’s work, “Face Series”, is a brilliant exploration of this concept, merging the abstract and the real to give us a wonderful portrayal of the individual in transition.
At the forefront of African sculpture, Anton Smit imbues his work with the belief that “man emulates and assimilates nature, producing poetry in word and form”. An expressionist by nature, Smit has a deep passion for conveying the infinite depths of emotion through portrayals of the human form. His sculptures possess a raw, earthy power which transforms his works from inanimate objects into larger than life expressions.
“I put so much effort into random places, so much effort into random faces, Face it – I’m faceless – Placeless – Drifting – Shifting”
– Anton Smit
