Rene Snyman

(SA 1974-      )

"In order to understand and appreciate my work someone shouldn't try to find out what the subject/object is all about, but for what it communicates, in other words what message it has," she says.

Rene describes the essence of her artwork as INTIMACY:

"This would really be the one word to describe my paintings - intimacy with the landscape, figures and the animals I portray. Everything that has a story to tell and has the element of life captures my attention."

On finishing a work of art, Rene distances herself from it so that it may fulfill its purpose.

"The purpose of my work is to bless others, to feed their hunger for beauty and to communicate something of God that must change their lives."

Art works form part of various private collections in amongst others The Netherlands, Ireland, England, Australia, Nieu-Zeeland United States of America, Canada and South Africa.
