Artists Comment/Statement:
"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived."

Artists Comment/Statement:
"Oh to be free of myself,
With nothing left to remember,
To have my heart as bare
As a tree in December;
Resting, as a tree rests
After its leaves are gone,
Waiting no more for a rain at night
Nor for the red at dawn."
- Sara Teasdale, The Tree

“Just think of the trees: they let the birds perch and fly, with no intention to call them when they come and no longing for their return when they fly away. If people's hearts can be like the trees, they will not be off the Way."- Langya

Artists Comment/Statement:
A chair is an integral part of everyday life. If we can forget our surroundings and put ourselves in a landscape of beauty we can escape and dream the ultimate dream. I would like first and foremost to let people feel and experience the beauty around them even in an ordinary perished chair.

Medium:
Oil on stretched canvas
Dimensions:
1500 mm x 1000 mm
Artists Comment/Statement:
My imagery is inspired by the stark vastness
of the southern Free State. Every aspect of my live is influenced by the land. I draw my inspiration from observing nature, always on the look for
“magical moments”.
My work has been an ongoing exploration ofwhat it feels like to be in that space, surrounded by all that air and light,feeling the tug of the horizon 360 degrees, the sense of limitlessness and blissful isolation.
The horizon and clouds are a magnet. I'm always drawn to the distant, blue horizon and the
succession of hills that create a tremendous sense of vastness.
It always begins with an awe-filled moment-an area with an intense contrast of light, dramatic shadows or shapes-something that will sustain
my interest through the painting process. The creative process is about discovery.
If you're not discovering something in each attempt, the work is probably lifeless.

 
               
    rina coetzee paintingsOns is op baie maniere gevangenes in ons land: eerstens van misdaad - daar die bloed en angs in 'n vrugtefles... plaas daarvan dat ons ons land en sy opbrengs kan geniet word ons oorval deur misdaad! Die bottel se deksel is effens oop is. Ons sal nie versmoor in misdaad nie - ons sal met die Here se hulp oorwin! Links onder sal julle ons in die stede sien - in graniet, agter grendels, vasgevang! Ons kan nie ons eie geniet sonder vrees en angs en die vryheid waarop elke landsburger geregtig is nie!   rina coetzee
