Corné le Roux
Artist Biography and Statement:
I paint because I cannot not do it. It is part of who I am. I only actively started painting in 2005, self taught and with the help of fellow artists I am were I am today.
For me, painting is a crucial part of my lifestyle, of who I am. It feeds my urge to great. It is my therapy in difficult times. It creates my quiet time in a busy schedule, were I can here myself think. With my paintbrush in my hand is were I feel closest to God, Abba Father, my Creator, were my worship comes out in colour, joy and awe for His creation.
Because I paint detail, it taught me to look different to the world around me, to look more intense, to see the beauty in the most ordinary thing.
