Lyn smuts


Born in the Free State, Smuts studied at Michaelis School of Art, the University of Natal, Pietermaritzburg, taught at the Visual Art Departement at Stellenbosch University and latterly obtained a MA in Visual Arts from Stellenbosch. 
Exhibited extensively and work has been included in private as well as public collections e.g. SA National Gallery, Sasol, Sanlam, Rand Merchant Bank, University of Stellenbosch, University of the Orange Free State, MTN Art Institute and Hollard

Trained as sculptor and printmaker, my new work explores the visual potency of objects. Here I focus on the strangeness
of purpose made functional objects taken from their intended context.
