HOFMEYR SCHOLTZ

I am predominantly a landscape artist who began painting seriously in 2019.  My technique is richly fertilized by three decades as an award-winning filmmaker and screenplay writer.   From the start, I painted precise, almost photographic images with a comic book twist and a distinct colour palette. 

Unique framing angles and the way I capture light, all combine to hint at hidden backstories through unearthing beauty in the mundane:  re-imagining the invisible every day as something containing a kind of splendour.

In today’s relentlessly goal-driven world, the journey has become a slave to its destination.  By freeze-framing an inconsequential split second, my drive-by landscapes provide pause to enjoy a moment in time, to meditate on the fickle grasp we have on eternity.

Enjoy the Journey.
