Add Maretha to your favorite artists list
She was one of the artists who joined M E Schler, Pieter van der Westhuizen, Gregoire, Hennie Niemann and Anene Barnard during 1994 in an exhibition commissioned by the Cape Council of Cultural Affairs.
Her name appears on more than five hundred works of art, proudly displayed in homes and offices, locally and overseas
MARETHA is an exciting, trendy artist whose training, experience, exposure to various facets of life and ability to capture figurative in a mystique background, equipped her to present a variety in her art that should appeal to the most diverse in art taste.
Maretha is well known for the commissioned work that she undertakes, and she will gladly discuss any requirements with prospective clients without any obligation.
4 group exhibitions
12 solo exhibitions
She has undertaken commission for several specific interior decorating projects.
She experiments amongst other with the striking effect of black and white opposites.
Maretha's daughter was diagnosed with bi-polar depression in 2003. Her condition rapidly deteriorated into serious psychoses. Maretha had to care for her like a baby. After ten months' hospitalization she was sufficiently stabilized for discharge.
Thus the 2004 exhibition’s symbolic theme: LABYRINTH. A maze bewilders, confuses, invariably leads to destruction. A labyrinth directs, supports and eventually leads to triumph.
2005 Exhibition - "Genesis" - and there was light.
3rd & 4th DECEMBER 2010 - "Life Lines"
November 2013 - Magersfontein Memorial Golf Estate, Kimberley
New Light on Life's Pathway
As life touches us in loss and rebirth. An artist finds solitude in new works, fresh starts. After a long period of stillness, Maretha,(previously Burger)decided to embark on her 12th solo exhibition, Life Lines; this December, 3rd and 4th at her studio gallery.
The artist has taken inspiration from her life path, loss of the father of her children to cancer, finding love again in a new marriage with the loving support and understanding of her husband, Eugene Champion. The artist finds inspiration where least expected. She says her handicapped daughter, Beatrice (aged 24) is her great LIGHT OF LOVE that grounds her.
It has been a long sabbatical. It has been a long wait. We are excited to have Maretha's works under our gaze of appreciation again.
