South African artist Gabrielle Kruger reimagines the traditional Western landscape painting through her unique practice of painting acrylic onto a canvas and then freeing the paint from its surface once dry. The paint becomes an independent, three-dimensional object ‒ a painting in its most absolute form. Her work aims to rearticulate the language and meaning associated with the natural environment.
Kruger has exhibited widely within South Africa and will show internationally for the first time in 2018. She holds a Master of Fine Arts from the Michaelis School of Fine Art, University of Cape Town.
