Adele Potgieter:

At first, the work of the Surrealists explored the notion of imagery as something that is metaphoric of a hidden, unconscious world. Later they abandoned this notion in favour of employing visual language to create new meaning. What I find of particular interest is how these artists used artistic language inter-textually and self-referentially, thereby exploring the ability of metaphorical language to create new meaning.


In my own work, I use images of objects and events I encounter on a daily basis. I use collage as a device to construct new images: A fresh picture plane allows for a new context where a combination of found or photographed images and/or objects are allowed to determine each others’ meaning.


Aspects of both control and randomness are inherent in this process: This ambiguity is of importance where the final product, painted in oil on canvas, hints to past and present, familiar and unfamiliar, known and unknown, conscious and unconscious.

Clare Menck:

Clare Menck is a figurative painter specializing in oils. Her passion for painting figures in a landscape setting in or around water is further augmented with a line of self-portraiture often (but not always) swimming. The landscape (especially water) becomes a metaphor for a deeper meaning surrounding the human subjects that inhabit it as if they are players on a natural stage. The artist revels in summery subjects making bathers her focus; Clare is renowned for her delightful painterly treatment of light and colour especially when capturing swimmers in water.

Lately, in a more moody atmospheric vein, Clare has turned to painting hounds by pools in moonlight and occasionally ‘retro’ subjects with some social commentary. Her different themes always have in common an uncanny observation of experienced reality portraying a deep sense of the inner worlds of these human and animal subjects.


Clare Menck is a Master’s graduate from the University of Stellenbosch with an Advanced Diploma in Fine Art from Michaelis (UCT). Her retrospective book “Clare Menck: Hidden Life” edited by Stefan Hundt, curator of Sanlam’s Art Collection, travelled the country to major museums and galleries as the accompanying catalogue to her mid-career retrospective celebrating 20 years of painting. Clare was included in the Top 40 selection of the Sanlam Portrait Awards national portrait competition twice (2013 and 2015).


Clare has had two successful cameo solos at 99 Loop Gallery in Cape Town in 2017 as well as participating in group exhibitions countrywide. Clare also hosted a well- received cameo solo at The Gallery in Riebeeck Kasteel during the Solo Studios weekend there, and more recently a cameo solo in The Victorian House Museum at the Tulbagh Arts Festival 2017. She regularly exhibits new prints at the SA Print Gallery in Woodstock and was represented by SA Print Gallery as well as by 99 Loop Gallery and Dawid Ras Fine Art at the Cape Town Art Fair, the Turbine Art Fair and the Joburg Art Fair (JAF) this year. One of her works hangs in the Iziko Collection and many more in corporate and private collections worldwide.

Jessica Storm Kapp:

My work seeks to investigate whether dirt, debris, found objects, and traces of dwelling can evoke multi-sensory experiences of place.

I use objects retrieved from the untouched natural environment of Knysna, a small coastal town devastated by fires in 2017. By looking at this experience through the phenomenological lens of my own subjective viewpoint, my work seeks to create visceral experiences of home. In doing so, I show how art acts as a vessel through which the ambience of home can be represented.

Reconstructing fragments of found objects, my work alludes to concepts of loss, trace, attachment, and reflection. My process allows me to physically resee
and re-imagine these spaces and sense of belonging.

Nicolene Burger

The grid and landscape exist together, blending and merging into an expression of art and the ego. This process and repetition of affirmative insights allow me agency over my inner narrative and bring in sight.

I see this relationship between the organic and the inorganic as an expression
of the tug of war I constantly experience between logic and intuition, profession and art, structure and flow.

This tug of war is a state that my art attempts to uncover, but not to solve. I
allow it to exist as it is without criticism or hesitation.

Natasha Norman:

Natasha Norman (b 1982) is an artist, educator, writer and surfer who delights in abstract mark making and viewer imagination.

My arts practice is based on balancing image making with viewer imagination by exploring how a collection of marks on paper can evoke something greater than a representation. I draw on my own sensory memories, art historical knowledge and the haptic quality of materials to evoke experiences and emotion. I engage the relationship between the materials I use as an artist and my experiences of the sea. I aim to interrogate how my actions as an artist can resonate with larger natural forces such as the weather.

Throughout my art training and career I have consistently been inspired by the medium and challenges of technologies of print. I trained in traditional Western print methods at the University of Cape Town and subsequently attended residencies in Japan to study the Japanese relief print method called Mokuhanga. My current work is very inspired by this watercolour print process, which has lead to an extended investigation of the watercolour medium.

I completed my Honours (2005) and Masters (2011) degree in Fine Art at the University of Cape Town. I am a part-time lecturer, arts writer and practicing artist, having lectured at various institutions and universities in South Africa and published as an independent writer in various journals and South African magazines.

Laurinda Belcher:

Is a painter inspired by the playful nature of her inner child. She describes her works as little stories with hidden elements that emerge from her intuitive process of art making. Her imagination is fueled by changing the perspective of domestic objects: the patterns found on curtains, duvet covers, or the play of light and shadow from the morning sun. Within the seemingly mundane Belcher describes a private world in acrylic paint and mixed media on canvas.

Belcher worked as a preschool teacher in Hanoi. Since returning to South Africa she has fostered her interest in psychology and the way that childhood trauma shapes an adult understanding of the world. This interest has imbued her work with both a whimsical and dark nature. Where words fail, her painting practice aims to liberate those, often conflicting, innermost thoughts and feelings. Shapes, colours and line emerge like archaeological findings in her picture plane. Her avid interest in folklore and superstitions shapes the narrative nature of her works so as to tap into the covert human psyche.

Belcher is currently based in Paarl. She was the October 2018 featured artist on Unsung online magazine and has collaborated with the Cape Orchid Society and Government Educational programme, The Ladybird Project. She has exhibited locally in various galleries.

Selected Exhibitions:

Yolanda Warnich:

Yolanda Warnich was born in Saldanha Bay, on the Cape West Coast, where she developed her lifelong passion for the sea and rugged landscapes. Warnich initially studied and worked in the world of fashion design, and spent time traveling and living abroad.

Warnich received her Bachelor in Visual Arts through UNISA in 2015. 

She is a painter at heart, but also a dedicated photographer, and until recently, created new media artworks by integrating the two. Her latest work, which involves mixed media on paper, reflects her concerns around land and ecology.

A recent ‘Nature Climate Change’ article termed the experience of ecological grief as a natural – though overlooked – response to ecological loss, likely to affect even more of us moving into the future. It was described as “the grief felt in relation to experienced or anticipated ecological losses, including the loss of species, ecosystems, and meaningful landscapes due to acute or chronic environmental change.”

I love all aspects of the natural world and spend as much time as possible close to the land and sea. As an artist, I always have a sketchbook with me, and through drawing, tap into my innate feelings of being in tune with the elements.

The works I created for the Land & Sea Exhibition took root from spontaneous sketches of my near ecological environment. The artworks do not evolve from photographic sources, but rather by sketching through careful observation on site; and then, in my studio, by further layering the drawings with images of the land from memory. The most significant memory images have been generated by my recollections of how the land felt and looked when we first moved to the Strand/Somerset-West area. As such, my creative practice revolves around exploring ways to trace my different responses to my immediate surroundings.

 Over the past five years, this area – known as the Helderberg basin – has been subject to major developments such as housing estates and commercial properties. This new manmade infrastructure, which includes more and wider roads, is destroying local wetlands that date back to the 1700s. Although efforts are being made to reinstate parts of the wetlands within specific new estates, the loss of the natural landscape has caused those of us with concerns around conservation to suffer ecological grief.

As a small example: regarding area-specific Red Data (threatened) plant species, only the dedication of committed environmentalists to preserving parts of the Helderberg land have led to the recent discovery of three previously unrecorded plant species on conserved farmland at the Vergelegen Estate in Somerset West, of which two are classified as vulnerable. There are another 21 identified Red Data species within the Lourensford alluvium fynbos region; and in the overall Hottentots Holland area, almost 300 threatened plant species occur.

My artmaking has become a means to protect my specific visual memories of a rich environment which – like the Red Data plant species – are threatened with obliteration once I am confronted by new brick and mortar structures. This translates through drawing into physical reactions to the paper. My acts of blocking out tend to occur when I feel frustrated by the eco-destruction and wish to conceal or cover areas previously worked on; yet at other times, I focus intently and draw on the paper carefully, mimicking the way that parts of the land are cordoned off for preservation.  

These drawings have been created as a tangible response to the ecological grief I experience as I hover between the memories and present experiences of my natural environments.
