Grant Netherlands

Painting is a wonderful way of going deeper into the beauty of the present moment.
While painting, time seems to disappear as forms take shape on the canvas.
There is a deep sense of peace in the creative process. The finished painting then becomes a record, a history, and physical evidence of the creative process in action. Subject matter, light, form and colour are key aspects to my work.

I hope it is evident to anyone looking at my artwork that i have a profound respect for nature and form, particularly as it is revealed in various qualities of light and shade. Painting light and colour in its various expressions have been a passion of mine from the beginning. My approach is basically inspired by curiosity, dream state and consciousness. I primarily work in my studio overlooking the sea, (Cape Town South Africa) an incredible source of inspiration.
‚Äč
I embrace and find most styles and techniques interesting, and I explores many of them, incorporating them when I can into my work. Therefore my personal painting method is a combination of many techniques and of course my own signature!

My work is regularly exhibited and sold in Abu Dhabi, USA and the UK and have held regular exhibitions abroad.

"If you hear a voice within you say 'you cannot paint', then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced". Vincent Van Gogh
