DIANE ERASMUS (article first published : 2007-10-11)

South Coast painter Diane Erasmus will be the next artist under the spotlight at the Anton Benzon @ Crouse Art Gallery, with her first solo exhibition at this prestigious gallery which opens on October 18.

This exciting gallery space in at 56 Adrain Road in Durban’s Morningside – a stone’s throw away from Windermere Centre - showcases excellent works of art by inspirational South African artists.

Di Erasmus favours moody seascapes and emotive landscapes. Diane is known for her series of florals, Namaqualand scapes and Drakensberg vistas. Diane works in oils and acrylics. Her work boasts an extraordinary sense of light and surprising palette of colours in impressionist-inspired textured paintings.

Born and educated in Port Elizabeth, she began painting in 1990 under the guidance of Rob Wareing, She was later influenced by Titta Faschiotti, who was also a personal friend and who helped develop her natural ability to capture the essence of the fall of light.

Having painted professionally for over 10 years, Diane Erasmus has acquired a growing reputation as a sensitive and highly original artist with a unique style all of her own. She believes that it is preferable to paint from life as this heightens the authenticity and spontaneity of the work and enhances the atmosphere which the image inspires.
