Brian Rolfe, Johannesburg Member Since October 2010 Artist Statement My work is a celebration of life and the power of the universe. I have grown to express a feeling or mood rather than a realistic representation of the world we live in. We have such a strong connection with the universe but it is often masked by our strive for existence and survival. I expect my audience, when they see my work, to be triggered by something they know so well but have neglected to acknowledge for some time. To awaken in them a feeling or memory that will strengthen their connection with the earth and their reason for living.
I attempt to capture the mystical quality I experience when spending time in nature on this amazing planet and especially Africa.
There is a certain emotion I can not communicate except by attaching an image to it.
