SmithDavidson Gallery is pleased to announce its representation of Spanish artist Lita Cabellut.
Lita Cabellut (1961, Spain) is a broad-focused artist who lives and works in The Hague. Her completed character as an artist in combination with her torrential force and extraordinary capacity, drives her artistic activities in multiple disciplines. Beyond her monumental paintings, her work includes an extraordinary touch for linguistics, sculptures, photography, installations, video and performance. She has also expanded to Opera scenography in the creation of stage, custom and video design. It is Lita Cabellut’s central tenant of a guiding poetic sense that stirs all these multidisciplinary tools.
Over the years, Cabellut has developed a unique technique characterized by large-scale canvases that combine traditional fresco techniques and modern media applications. The central theme of the human and the societal messages that Lita Cabellut communicates in her work is primarily expressed through her defining monumental portraits.
Lita Cabellut has been awarded Dutch National Artist of the Year.
Work by Cabellut will be included in the upcoming December Group Show 2020, which is on view in the Amsterdam gallery from November 27 until Mid January. A solo exhibition is in preparation for February 2021.
