Cape Town Art Guide – 16Sep

Heidi Fourie

University of Pretoria Graduate, Heidi Fourie is constantly rethinking the notion of ‘the painting.’

She is inspired by the nature of the medium, embracing the language of mark-making to explore the balance of order and chaos, control and uncontrollability, figuration and its negation in the picture plane.
