The Broken Earth Series:

How does one face a white canvas, as an artist? When all around us the earth we occupy, has broken in two… Gone! Thus the reason for my series of paintings:

1.The tree of Life: With the crumbling soil beneath its roots, it stands fruitless.

2. The bonds that bind us: Families move on. Ties have been broken as we watch them blow softly in the wind.

Anel Wessels

Artist Bio:

My photographic work explores issues around societal inequalities and personal stories. My approach to my subject and environment, combined with the documentary qualities of traditional black and white film photography, allows me to create emotive works which tell a story through intimate and candid moments, inviting the viewer to bear witness.

Anel Wessels RETURN I, II, III
Hand printed photography 250 x 310mm, framed
R2 700 each

I cultivated my passion for analogue/documentary photography and the process of hand printing whilst studying Fine art at The Michaelis School of Fine Art, UCT. I’ve worked around Southern and East Africa and currently reside in Cape Town.

Earlier bodies of works such as West Coast and The Gospel Express investigate very specific communities to tell a larger story of what happens to people on the sidelines of a hyper-modernised society. Since then I have turned the camera onto my own life and am using photography as a tool to process trauma by documenting my own as well as my loved ones’ experience with issues such as gender-based violence.

Anel Wessels RETURN I, II, III
Hand printed photography 250 x 310mm, framed
R2 700 each

Though my work often deals with serious subjects, I attempt to keep my imagery subtle and poetic and continue to document life as it happens around me.

Stephen J Quirke

I seek to reflect our yearning to return to the garden by painting what I see:

Each crag, each tree each boulder – shaped through time

Each creature, each person – created unique

I want to honour the detail in watercolour

I want to show something beautiful – perhaps something important

maybe even the hand of God Creator of heaven and earth

I prefer the vibrant, fresh immediacy of painting from life or on-site – Stephen J Quirke, Artist Statement.

Hanli Theron

Artist Bio:

Hanli is a well-known artist who received a BA in Fine Arts at the University of Stellenbosch in 1984; in the following year she completed a course in jewellery design and ten years later she completed a business degree at the Graduate School of Business at her alma mater, the University of Stellenbosch. Since 2013, Hanli has been exhibiting annually, including several exhibitions in Cape Town and its surroundings. Her work has travelled as far as Lamberts Bay and Port Elizabeth.

Currently, she is the owner and resident artist at the Pumpkin House Art Hub in Langebaan. Her inspiration comes from the ocean and swimming in open and cold-water conditions. These unchartered waters are the driving force behind Hanli’s art. She tunes into the rhythm of the sea and the movement within becomes an inexhaustible source of her genius.
