Jeffrey Smart
The stilt race

Creation date: 1960

‘As Smart’s visual language evolved, a striking theatricality became increasingly apparent with a dynamic interplay between the real and the absurd or uncanny,’ writes exhibition curator Deborah Hart.

The stilt race conveys dream-like possibilities within the real world. The cropping of the image gives the sense of a moment in time; a glimpse into a world we can only see part of.
