HELEEN VERWEY (article first published : 2002-04-21)

The NSA Gallery is to host an exhibition of recent paintings by Heleen Verwey from April 30 at 18h00.

Heleen Verwey is a Dutch artist now living in South Africa. She has a diverse background in the arts, having worked in theatre, television, animation and in music both as an organiser and a performer. For the last 15 years she has worked in fine art, at first in her spare time but in the last nine years, full time.

She studied at the Academie voor Beeldende Kunsten in Rotterdam and has exhibited widely in Europe, Holland and elsewhere. Her last solo exhibition was at the National Art Gallery of Namibia in October 2001.

Her work falls in the genre of “informal art” and she expresses herself in a number of different mediums. In her works she uses canvas, wood and stone. Her art is strongly influenced by symbols and spiritual icons mainly influenced by Eastern and African cultures.

The exhibition runs until May 19.
