Derric van Rensburg

For many of us what we do and who we are are two separate concepts but I have found that, being an artist these two concepts have become inexorably linked. Let me explain – when I am sitting in a restaurant drinking numerous cups of espresso (which I love) my mind searches for ways to remember this scene. I allow, wherever I find myself whether driving, talking to friends or listening to music to become part of my mind to put it onto canvas so that ultimately you may also come and live in my world. I do not paint because it is my work I paint because I “can do no other” to quote those famous words used by Martin Luther.

My art then is not only representative of who I am but of all who have been in and out of my life – my parents, siblings, wife, friends, children, grandchildren and even those who challenged me and my art form.

I have helped many aspiring artists find their way some have left school and some are still in school. I believe my gift for art is to be used to help others as well as to enrich my own life.
