Jacobus Hendrik Pierneef | Landscape painter

Jacobus Hendrik (Henk) Pierneef (usually referred to as Pierneef) (Pretoria, 1886–1957), was a South African landscape artist (from Dutch parents), generally considered to be one of the best of the old South African masters.
His distinctive style is widely recognised and his work was greatly influenced by the South African landscape.
Most of his landscapes were of the South African highveld, which provided a lifelong source of inspiration for him. Pierneef's style was to reduce and simplify the landscape to geometric structures, using flat planes, lines and colour to present the harmony and order in nature.

Brian Rolfe 1972 | Johannesburg

I am a Johannesburg based artist. I create paintings that are unique to South Africa and Africa. My work focuses on the world around me. I do not always create a realistic representation of what I observe but often walk into a landscape and rather paint what I feel than what I see. “My work is a celebration of life and the power of the universe. We have such a strong connection with the universe but it is often masked by our strive for existence and survival”. ”I expect my audience, when they see my work, to be triggered by something they know so well but have neglected to acknowledge for some time. To awaken in them a feeling or memory, that will strengthen their connection with the earth and their reason for living”.
