Artist Description

"The Karoo is like a Kaleidoscope, it is ever changing in colour, shape and form". The Karoo is an inexhaustible supply of inspiration for Lizelle Kruger. A place of kado'tjies (gifts), family history, identity and natural beauty. Lizelle's current body of work is centred around the Sutherland and Merweville areas, the Tanqua Karoo & The Koup. The artist finds her inspiration on the farms of her late grandfather, where she is constantly uncovering poignant artifacts of a lifetime ago - often rusted and weathered, for the artist, these objects represent the perfect metaphor for the fragile and transient nature of life in these harsh surroundings. The traditional Voortrekker bonnet, which appears in many of her works is a particular feature of her exploration of female identity and culturally prescribed gender roles. These explorations are always linked to the land - that fertile, timeless and demanding mother of our daily needs.
