Description

The Sea, Angels and Bearded Ladies - A solo exhibition by Leon Vermeulen at RK Contemporary, Riebeek Kasteel – 28 April 2019

“When I paint I feel at home. In the studio and in the work. I start and wait for mysteries and meanings to appear. Always surprised and in wonderment.
The work is about being in my body and not knowing what it is like to be the other. It is about solitude. Sometimes images I create let me in. Then I am in the work. The work becomes my body.
I am always at sea. Between two shores. Between the painting and my existence. I am not afraid.
in my skin, separate from you
a membrane of paper
light and dark
archaeological sites
evacuations
shards
palimpsests
fragile infinities
beginnings and endings
a love song
birdsong
breath of air
paper quivering
ink stains silently growing
slowly moving
like weather
birthmarks
departures and full stops……..:”

Leon Vermeulen studied art at Stellenbosch University and was lecturer at the Cape Technikon. He now lives and works in Knysna and has exhibited since 1980. He is represented in private and public collections in South African and Europe.
