South African artist Ilse Fourie says the following about her paintings:
“I paint from my soul. The human body is the vehicle through which I portray my concepts, emotions and thoughts. I retain a spiritual relationship with nature and it is in my latest work that I explore a metamorphic process from nature to man. By using a process of oxidation on the surface that I paint on, nature’s influence in the creative process is further enhanced.”
Ilse Fourie works from her studio in Johannesburg, South Africa. After studying fine arts at the University of South Africa and the University of the Free State, she completed two diplomas in fashion design and subsequently manufactured her own label for fourteen years, before returning to the arts in 1998. She has since exhibited her paintings at various galleries in South Africa.
