JEREMY VAN DER WANT

Jeremy Van der Want grew up in the Johannesburg suburb of Melville where he pined for the freedom of the South African bushveld and a way to express his love for nature. He was fortunate enough to encounter the acclaimed abstract expressionist Fred Schimmel who was a family friend and allowed Jeremy as an eager youngster to have access to his studio, where Jeremy learned paper making, the fundamentals of printing and the personal and meaningful nature of Schimmel's impressive oeuvre of abstract landscape, highly specific mark-making and colour mixing.
