About Rhen

Rhen Hanekom

Like most people, I struggle with my inner critic. But I get an indescribable satisfaction from the act of creating a painting. I spend a lot of time with each canvas, trying to find the right expression of light in a journey of discovery, knowing that when I do manage to find it I'll create something special. An object of value. I enjoy the journey of discovery almost as much as the finished work and the appreciation expressed by others.
Even accomplished artists work hard at their art, it is not merely an act of copying what they see in a mechanical way. Paintings created in this way can appear flat and lifeless. It's not easy to pin down, but there is another aspect; that of exploration and invention that informs the art, lending it a mood or atmosphere. Giving it life. I find inspiration daily in people, things and moments: a beautiful sunset, a stormy sea, a glint of light reflected from a kettle or simply the smile on a child's face.
Working in a realistic style, exploring the relationship between hues, form and tonal values is crucial and requires continuous awareness and careful study. I aim to render the essence of the subjects in front of me. Observing carefully, mixing twice, painting once. I become aware of the world around me, experience the pleasure of seeing and finding an alchemy between the paint, the subject and the moment.
When I am happy to hang a painting on my own wall, I know it is completed.
