About The Artwork

In the early 2000's Zaan painted The Four Elements: earth, air, fire, and water; however, in recent years, she has gravitated to the specific element of water. Spending much time in, on, or near it: the Indian and Atlantic Oceans in South Africa, the many beautiful rivers, Great Lakes and Pacific Ocean in Canada. This inspires her to observe the interplays between light and water, and water and sky. She finds it mesmerising. The ebb and flow of water provide her with a continuously changing picture: the constant movement of the water combined with the ever-changing light and its reflections results in renewed and limitless sources of creativity and perceptions. Are we looking at water or sky? Are we seeing what is above or below? Whatever appears in the water is no longer what it originally was (a fish, a tree, sky), but has become other, it has become re-contextualized. It is this re-contextualization that can make us aware of nature’s magnificence.

I was born in South Africa in 1970. As a child we moved from Pietermaritzburg to Pretoria to Rustenburg to Jeffries Bay to Stellenbosch to Harare, finally settling in Cape Town. I spent my last year of school in Oxford, Ohio as an exchange student and then returned to Stellenbosch, where I completed a BA Degree in Graphic Design. For the next decade I lived in Northern Alberta, followed by a couple of years thawing out on the Island of Saipan. Thereafter I returned to South Africa via Ireland, and a few more years in Canada. I currently spend my time between South Africa and Canada. In South Africa I reside next to the Atlantic Ocean in a suburb nestled between the Twelve Apostles, Table Mountain, Lion’s Head and the Ocean. It is truly one of the most beautiful places on the planet. In Canada I live on the North Western Pacific Coast. more to follow....
