Alet Venter is a contemporary abstract painter based in Cape Town, South Africa. Her paintings reflect the ever changing landscape of human emotions. Described by the language of colour and an instinctive approach, the works contain a deep sensuality. The paintings become meditations, vessels of an emotional life. In the earlier part of her career she was successful as a figurative, portrait and still-life artist, working mainly in oils.
Her work is a journey beyond the intellect into the realm of the spiritual and symbolizes the process of re-interpreting the past and the continuous changes we make as we journey towards the future. In her abstract paintings She allowed herself to discard most traditional "rules "of painting application. She explores colours and consider the materials she uses as one of the most important part of her paintings. Therefor the journey of life has become a series of richly embedded textures and layered surfaces. Her work is the manifestation of emotions on canvass. Today, she chooses to work in abstract form in large scale. The scale allows her to capture some things that are simply not possible in the smaller works.
Many of her works have been sold to private collectors in South Africa, Europe, Great Britain and North America. She exhibited her works of art in galleries in South Africa, America and France.
She was nominated for artist of the year by The Artist in You, and her painting "Flower" was chosen for the Ultimate Collection - New York. Her art was Exhibited together with artist around the globe on the billboards of Time Square, New York in 2012 and 2014 and exhibited in The Story of the Creative Exhibition at the See Me NYC Gallery, July 2013.
