That exact specific moment you see someone you strangely enough feel a connection with but haven’t yet shared a word with. That exact moment of exhilaration or perhaps recognition. That is what this piece is about for me, but it could mean something completely different for you and that’s great.”

That exact specific moment you see someone you strangely enough feel a connection with but haven’t yet shared a word with. That exact moment of exhilaration or perhaps recognition. That is what this piece is about for me, but it could mean something completely different for you and that’s great.”

 

Smit’s second solo exhibition follows on from his first, “CURB” which dealt with our relationship with our urban environments and the strange irony that develops in increasingly larger cities, finding that the closer people live together the further alienated they feel.

Smit has taken careful detail in choosing which subjects to paint by adding another level of complexity to his various compositions, taking into consideration each character’s social structure, hierarchies and inner tumultuous seas or placid pools that spill over into their depicted world.

Bound offers a small glimpse into the world of the chosen subject, like a frozen moment of people watching, that if viewed carefully enough can tell you everything about them.
