ARTIST DETAILS

WESSEL VAN HUYSSTEEN

SOUTH AFRICA

“I am a painter who lives off-grid in the rural districts of the Free State Province in South Africa. My main concern is with the landscape and the patterns that we as humans impose on it. I work in watercolor on cotton paper, which references a colonial traveller/painter/explorer’s painterly tradition. It is a medium that could be described, in a digital age, as being as outmoded as analogue, but that is what I find appealing. Instead of using it as a sketch or study for the ‘final’ oil painting I paint on an oversized scale not usually associated with watercolor.”
