Alet is an Artist with SouthAfricanArtists.com based in South Africa.
Alet Venter is a contemporary abstract painter based in Somerset West, Western Cape, South Africa. Her paintings reflect the everchanging landscape of human emotions. Described by the language of colour and an instinctive approach, the works contain a deep sensuality. The paintings become meditations, vessels of an emotional life. In the earlier part of her career she was successful as a figarative, portrait and still-life artist, working mainly in oils.
Her work is a journey beyond the intellect into the realm of the spiritual and symbolizes the process of re-interpreting the past and the continuous changes we make as we journey towards the future. In her abstract paintings She allowed herself to discard most traditional "rules"of painting application. She explore colours and consider the materials she use as one of the most important part of her paintings. Therefor the journey of life has become a series of richly embedded textures and layered surfaces. Today, she chooses to work in abstract form in large scale. The scale allows her to capture some things that are simply not possible in the smaller works.
Many of her works have been sold to private collectors in South Africa, Europe, Great Britain and North America.
