Thursday 2nd November 2017 from 6pm to 9pm
Exhibition continues until 22nd December 2017
With a career spanning nearly 50 years and over 40 exhibitions both locally and internationally, Richard Smith will be presenting his 18th solo exhibition, Ghost in the Machine, at EBONY/CURATED Cape Town this November.
Richard Smith began his artistic career as a political cartoonist in the 1970ís and was the Standard Bank Cartoonist of the year in 1980 and 1984. He began painting in the mid 80ís following his residency at the CitÈ Internationale des Arts in Paris. Smith refers to his paintings as accidental, allowing the act of painting to be foremost while form and content are secondary. The human form has been a recurring subject for the artist and his paintings hint at elements, influences and inspirations from a wide variety of artists yet at the same time retaining a unique and richly layered visual irreverence.
