Cornelia Brand/Snyman: "My paintings are a reflection of my complex personality and gives meaning to my life and colour to those of other"
As a child, I used to love wondering off on my own and just absorb and observe the immense space before me. My paintings are always related to an emotional memory. It could be the textures of an object, or the magic of light and color that provokes and motivates me.
I am a police woman, stationed in the Strand, South Africa, with no previous art education. My paintings are strongly influenced by the changes that took place in South Africa and in my life, since democracy where after I, like so many other South Africans, developed a far deeper awareness of the richness of his African environment and legacy. Inspired by that I have developed a passion for art, although no education in such a subject, have ever come to my mind. My paintings are naive and simplistic in form. An earthy influence is present in most works. The use of colors is highlighted by bright colors depicting the multifaceted nation. I work mainly in oils occasionally using a combination of oils and acrylics in some of my works.
