Thelma van Rensburg South Africa
  Back to profiles

I am a contemporary artist from South Africa with a Master of arts in Fine Arts and Bachelor is Psychology. I love to experiment with mediums and often combine mediums creating works in ink and then digitally manipulating them or creating collages and then reworking them in oil paint. I also work on mixed media and watercolour and love visual journaling.

My practice focuses on psychological trauma and the concept of the Self by means of the aesthetics of the grotesque. I grapple with these concepts in multiple mediums from oil paint to collage to watercolour. They all inform each other at some point and sometimes they coalesce into digital works.
