Glendine Chisholm

Born in Pretoria, raised in Namibia and living in a small town in the Klein Karoo, Glendine is a well known artist who has exhibited in South Africa as well as New York City.

'I've always been inspired by the rural and vast open landscape that I am surrounded by in the Klein Karoo and the nostalgia of old abandoned farm houses and the stretched out landscapes, translated into the 'patchwork' narrative of my Karoo landscapes. The still life studies serve as a way to capture the beauty of changing seasons, bringing seasonal fruits and our way of life to the canvas, to brighten our lives with colour and deep nostalgia for a way of life.

I constantly draw from my own life, as a woman, mother and artist. My life, my place and my artistic longings drive me daily to create and live with meaning.
