Johannes is an Artist with SouthAfricanArtists.com based in South Africa.
1. To view my artwork is to experience the idea of space. To imagine something and to form a particular sort of mental representation of that thing. Imagining is typically distinguished from mental states such as perceiving,remembering and believing. Therefore the figuration of recognisable objects/shapes
you can find in all my work.
2. To come to a style is merely a tool, meant to facilitate the expression
of an idea; therefore most artists’ work will not fit nearly into any specific category.
A style is a tool, not a label. I utilize my Expressionistic style as a tool to achieve my goal. Every collection of artworks that I create might differ from the previous year.
The reason for that is, to search for the ultimate challenge, a playground of fulfillment.
3. I collect subconsciously the wide variety of visual stimuli around us every day, in advertisements and media, our relationships and experiences, objects, nature and architecture and people, to mention a few. All these can offer artistic references.
4. Within my work you will find all sorts of elements, faces and figuration. With my spontaneous artistic approach on the canvas, I stimulate and evoke the viewer’s senses so that he/she could discover what ever he likes to perceive.
I describe my new creations as infinite, therefore the endlessness that borderline the work.
