The Art Gallery Exhibits Four Local Artists

Whom have created a new home at The Art Gallery on the corner of High Street and Royal Lane in Hermanus.

Jeandré Marinier, Christine Henderson, Erna Dry and Lize van der Walt each have their own distinctive style and work in different mediums, but their artworks blend together harmoniously in their spacious and bright new gallery.

The current exhibition is inspired by nature but also includes abstracts, drawings and ceramics. The four artists take turns to be at the gallery during opening hours and they enjoy interacting directly with their clients. Artwork can be commissioned and shipped.

The Art Gallery is part of the Hermanus First Fridays Artwalk, held on the first Friday of every month.

From Abstraction To Realism

Jeandre Marinier: 060 676 8652 ~ marinier.jeandre@sfr.fr

I have found a passion for expression through oil painting. At the heart of my work is an intuitive desire to express my joy of life with others.

My goal is to find a perfect balance of fine drawn detail and spontaneous flowing colour that makes the artwork crisp and draws the viewer in for a closer look.

Driven by the inspiration of nature, it’s textures and patterns I employ a wide variety of subject matter from realistic to abstract. I put my creative heart first.

After my health problems, painting helped me to heal, rediscover, feel. It moves me deeply and I hope in turn that it moves others and brings them joy.

Drawings & Ceramics Born Of Nature & Mythology

Erna Dry: 084 206 7722 ~ erna@hornbillhouse.co.za

Erna Dry is an artist who specialises in drawing and ceramic sculpture. She draws her inspiration from nature and mythology often working in combination.

Dry has had a ceramic studio for the past 30 years, and has over time, trained numerous previously unskilled men and women to sculpt and paint ceramic figures and animals.

Her first love is drawing and she now manages to juggle her time to indulge in both disciplines. Her work is currently on display in The Art Gallery and Hornbill Gallery , both in Hermanus.

Richly Textured, Expressionistic Works

Lize Van Der Walt: 076155 9015 ~ lizeartist@gmail.com

Lize’s paintings have a defined signature and the viewer will recognise her distinct style. Her inspiration is derived from her immediate surroundings and emotional journeys.

The subject matter might be real and existing i.e. ‘Grotto beach’ but the viewer will almost always find himself on a journey.

The light draws you into the scene bringing forth the viewers own spiritual ending. Lize specialises in semi-abstract, and semi-realistic seascape and landscape painting.

Recently her paintings have become more expressionistic with rich textures, multiple layers, poured paint and brush and palette knife marks.

Her approach is to draw people in and invite them to experience emotional and spiritual feelings of the soul, not just The image itself.

Spontaneous Simplicity Of Form

Christine Henderson: 082 922 3815 ~ bssteakhouse@absamail.co.za

My desire to paint was re-awakened after joining an Astar painting group. Artists are encouraged to work without planned outcomes or expectations this makes it a liberating experience.

My creative expression is a meditative process drawing on subconscious aspects while striving to honesty and simplicity of thought and expression.

I am inspired by music, colour and nature’s abstracts. I use various techniques to manipulate acrylic paint and ink.
