Riaan van Zyl

Riaan van Zyl Solo Studios 2019

Riaan van Zyl takes inspiration from commonplace and ordinary ideas while exploring his impression and apprehension of things around him, re-imagining their context and value with a deconstructed eye, and working in experimental media such as old car oil, anthracite and cobalt salts. While at first glance his work may look abstract and confusing, the results have their own very personal structure, movement, punctuation and composition: the focus relies heavily on challenging the viewer to see everyday things in a different light.

Riaan has exhibited internationally and locally in over 30 solo shows and group exhibitions, and his works hang in prestigious art collections around the world.
