Three local artists featured in our latest issue – Kilmany-Jo Liversage, Drummond Murphy, and Lizelle Kruger – create work that is thought-provoking and striking in its technique. Working in a variety of mediums, these artists draw on universal ideas that make their pieces relevant, each in their own distinct style.
Working in an impressive variety of mediums, including watercolours, oils, acrylics, charcoal, pastel, ink, pencil crayon, mixed media, ceramics, fibreglass and paper mâché, Lizelle Kruger has exhibited both locally and abroad. Lizelle’s work includes landscapes, still life, portraits, sculptures and large murals.
Much of Lizelle’s work takes its inspiration from South African people and landscapes, and her pieces have a distinctly local aesthetic. Her heritage and identity as an Afrikaans woman are central to her work and her oils on canvas, large-scale pastels, and sculptural installations reflect this and are saturated in symbolism.
Lizelle has exhibited far and wide, from Dubai to Dublin, and her work can be found in private collections in the UK, Germany, Austria, Australia, the USA, Singapore, Ireland and the United Arab Emirates.
Lizelle’s work can be found at the StateoftheART Gallery in Buitenkant Street, Cape Town www.stateoftheart-gallery.com
