Drawing her inspiration primarily from the beauty of the natural world, South African artist, Diane Erasmus, has emerged as one of the most innovative and creative painters of her generation.
Her vivid and colourfully inventive landscapes and seascapes are imbued with a profoundly spiritual awareness, yet remain grounded in those elements which define a great work of art.
Diane prefers to work from life and travels extensively in order to glean new material for her work. Whether in her depictions of the floral glory of the Namaqualand spring re-birthing, or in her moody treatment of river and seascapes, the honesty and uniqueness of her vision shines through.
Under the mentorship of her life-partner, renowned landscape artist Anton Benzon, the work of this KwaZulu-Natal artist has matured to the extent that it has become instantly recognisable and once seen is immediately memorable.
