About

Rona Smith is an artist based in London working mainly in sculpture and installation in the public realm. Rona draws on her interest in heritage architecture, period design and sacred geometry to create sculptures and gates which reference the history of their location and the purpose of the building they inhabit.

Given the permanent nature of the majority of Rona’s work, she aims to establish a sense of timelessness by employing classical principles of design alongside a freer, playful approach to imagery.

In addition to public works, Rona also makes experimental, materials-based works which inform her commissions. Many of these works relate to the elapse of time and are inspired by the physical processs that are triggered when objects and buildings in the urban environment are neglected.

Rona is currently working on three new permanent public works commissioned by JC Decaux, Auriens Extra Care Residential Scheme and TH Real Estate. She has completed several public art commissions including works in New Burlington Mews, Regent Street, Lumen United Reformed Church in Russell Square and Z Hotels in Soho.

Rona was born in London in 1983 and has a Fine Art degree from Leeds University.
