Louis Wienand - "Rust"
Acrylic on Board
W: 500mm x H: 400mm x D: 3mm

This work is unframed
The colour and texture of rusting machine parts half covered by sand in the Struisbaai harbour caught my eye, showing that there is beauty even in decay.
Being retired , and having moved from Namibia to Swellendam,afforded me the opportunity to start painting in 2006. I am inspired by objects, colours, and light , focussing at times more on the detail of an aspect of a scene than the scene as a whole. Subjects in and around my home are used, sometimes in complicated compositions. Light colour, composition and perspective becomes as important to me as the subject matter. This along with capturing the essence of the subject is of utmost importance to me. I do not want to change the world, influence or shock people, nor make social comments. All I aim for is to enable someone else to see the beauty and share the enjoyment that is to be derived from everyday scenes and objects all around us.
