About "Deep Calls to Deep"

Deep calls unto deep.
Psalm 42:7.
IN the grandeur of Nature there are amazing harmonies. When the storm agitates the ocean below,
the heavens above hear the tumult, and answer to the clamor; down comes a deluge of sonorous hail or
swift-descending rain, attended with peals of thunder, and flashes of flame. Frequently the waterspout,
of which David speaks in the next sentence, evidences the sympathy of the two great waters above, and
beneath the firmament; the great deep above stretches out its hands to the great deep below, and in voice
of thunder their old relationship is recognized; it is almost as if the twin seas remembered how once they
lay together in the same cradle of confusion till the decree of the Eternal appointed each his bounds and

Deep calls unto deep one splendor of Creation holds fellowship with another. Amazed and
overwhelmed by the spectacle of some tremendous tempest upon land, you have yet been able to observe
how the clouds appear to be emptying themselves each into each, and the successive volleys of
Heaven's artillery are answered by rival clamors, the whole chorus of sublimities lifting up their voices!

It has seemed to me that a strange wild joy was moving all the elements, and that the angels of wind and
tempest were clapping their awful hands in glorious glee. Among the Alps, in the day of tempest, the
solemnly silent peaks break through their sacred quiet, and speak to each other in that dread language
which is echoing the voice of God

Far along,
From peak to peak the rattling crags among,
Leaps the live thunder!
Not from one lone cloud,
But every mountain now has found a tongue,
And Jura answers, through her misty shroud,
Back to the joyous Alps, who call to her aloud.

About Leonie

Leonie Brown

'I am a wandering eye poet, an eclectic color fanatic. I want my paintings to leap off the wall and overwhelm you with their tactile, chocolate thick, color and texture.'

Passionate, expressive, urgent, often using palette knives to scrape and make marks into the paint.

Leonie's current body of work focus more on South African landscapes, using thick impasto paint with lots of texture and color. She describes the process of painting as, passionate, expressive, urgent, often using palette knives to scrape and make marks into the paint.
She is also is a multiple award winner and has taken part and either been placed or won some of the most prestigious awards for Fine Art in South Africa, which includes the following:

* Gregoire Boonzaaier Art Bursary, First prize, 1985.
* Potchefstroom Talent Festival: First prize, 1986.
* Schweikcherd Art Bursary for Painting.
* Winner of Volkskas National Fine Art Competition.
* Placement and First Prize in Fine Art Category, 1986.
* Rolfes Impressions.
* Placement in top 10 nationally: Total Exhibition for Young Artists

Her Abstract work has been described as Abstract Expressionism, but this has not limited Leonie's oeuvre; her realistic work contains and conveys the same explosive energy as her conceptual creations.
With the use of extremely thick impasto paint, bright and unusual color combinations and her own secret intriguing technique, her work tends to overpower the space it occupies.

She believes that the work in itself should be sufficient and powerful enough to carry out the message she is attempting to express. For the last few years she has been focusing on establishing herself as a serious investment artist. She describes her current work as Romantic Turnerism influenced by the likes of Constable, Turner and South African Artist, Errol Boyley, and Adriaan Boshoff.
She has been named as: the new Errol Boyley of South Africa, as well as an artist with the ability to paint like the Old Masters.
