"From The Ashes" 18 April ~ 1 May 2013
Exhibition Hosted at The Studio Kalk Bay, 122 Main Road, Kalk Bay, 7975, Cape Town, Western Cape.

A collection inspired by humanity's influence on our natural world. The unguarded devastation, the futile efforts of the concerned, the truth hiding in the moonless. Will those at risk, like the mythical Phoenix, rise from destruction, survive another generation?

I am proud to exhibit my most personal work to date. As an artist you have many elements to bare in mind when working on a piece. In this series I walked away from the commercial standards. I portrayed every personal thought and feeling with color and line. With the ambition to establish myself I introduce you to the rising "From The Ashes" - Deziree Smith
