Born in March 1970, the genesis of Casey's artistic path began under humble circumstances, copying Disney characters and immersing himself in an imaginary world at age 10. He recalled how the animators would make rough sketches of, for instance, water ripples or the movements of trees and the rustle of leaves in a cold wind and incorporate these effects to add a sense of mood. It is the attention to detail and the observation of nature that gives a depth to his work.
At the age of 13, Casey watched a national television documentary of his great grandfather, Tinus de Jongh. After which he began on a mission of self-learning. His first drawings were copies of etchings by Rembrandt and Tinus. He immersed himself in art, neglecting school studies, and began his first forays into painting landscapes in watercolors. The decline in his school academic performance resulted in him being sent to a private boarding school in Grahamstown when he was 15. The House Master allowed Casey a backroom at his residence to paint.
Casey wisely decided not to make art a full time career, and began his studies towards a degree in civil engineering. He would nevertheless paint on weekends and often take time out with trips to Cape Point and the Wine lands. His seascapes of this period are dark and moody
With a combined career as an artist and engineer in mind he completed his second degree, in electronic engineering at the University of Cape Town, and financed all his expenses by painting on weekends. Unfortunately, opportunities in his field of interest were rather limited, and he was left with very little time to paint. Since then he has been working as a full-time artist. The departure from the De Jongh paintings is thus not to create ’picture perfect' Cape scenes.
Born Pretoria, 1939. He is best known for his impressionistic paintings of landscapes of village scenes. He now lives in Cape Town.
Christo Coetzee was born in Johannesburg in March 1929. Growing up in Turffontein, he had no lack of material to spark his imagination.
He attended Wits University. Thereafter, he had his first solo exhibition in Cape Town. He went to London with a Postgraduate scholarship from Wits.
In 1956, through the mediation of the British Council, Coetzee received funds from the Italian government to go to Italy for the first four months of that year. In Japan Coetzee was introduced to the avant-garde Gutai Group. Before his return to Paris in early 1960 they invited him to exhibit his new works in Osaka at the Takashimaya gallery. At the end of January 1961 he had his first solo exhibition at the Galerie Stadler, and then, immediately after, travelled back to Johannesburg to have his first exhibition in 10 years on home soil. He spent most of the next three years in Paris, and his second solo exhibition at the Galerie Stadler took place in 1963.
He left Paris after living and working there for 10 years and visited South Africa for a short while. He then settled in Spain.
A second retrospective exhibition of Coetzee’s works was held in the Pretoria Art Museum in 1983, showing 81 works from 1965 to 1983. A third retrospective took place at the University of Stellenbosch on his 70th birthday in 1999.
Coetzee died in Tulbagh at the age of 71 in November of 2000.
Born 1938 in Durban, Natal.
He is today recognised as an artist of international standard and works in oil.
Best known for his abilities to capture the brilliant light of the sun – drenched Transvaal high veld, the atmosphere of the old tobacco farms of the Magaliesburg district, his work reveals an intense awareness and responsiveness to the vast and spacious African veld, and shows a sensitive observation of cloud formations and the influence of the sky on the landscape.
The subtle and poetic moods of nature interest him more than the dramatic and highly colorful, and it is his delicate rendering of these moods that has become a hallmark of his style.
