‘Visible and Invisible Connections’

‘Visible and Invisible Connections’ by Salomi Prinsloo Pretoria based artist, Salomi’s “apple tree” has turned not into colourful geometric shapes, but into a “cloud”.  Her realistic and impressionistic aloes and floral studies are now transformed into softer shapes as they lose their sure forms due to looser lines and brushstrokes which gradually gained ground, until only the “cloud centre” remains; resembling just the essence and fragrances of the floral world visually. Her intention of presenting flowers and natural objects realistically, disappeared in a...

As we wait, we celebrate what is slowly, painfully, purposefully being birthed in...

The Dead Sea Scrolls, and other letters from antiquity discovered in archaeological history. The emotive content is, however, still inadvertently transmitted to the viewer. Although he now uses two and three dimensional elements together, the main emphasis is still on Badenhorst’s painterly style, layers of paint, spontaneous...
