Fiona Rowett based in George, Western Cape, is one of South Africa’s leading artists and a talented graduate from the Michaelis School of Fine Art at the University of Cape Town . After a short teaching career she became a full time artist who has since held 25 solo exhibitions in South Africa. Fiona continues to exhibit in group shows both locally and internationally.
Her work can be characterised by their rich, abstract forms which emphasise shape, texture and colour often using techniques of layering and scratching paint. Forms emerge and disappear until she finds a balance. Her passion does not lie with describing the visible world but rather delving into the invisible – to reveal concealed beauty. Her layered colours and carefully constructed surfaces produce a shimmery effect, a physical expression of inner light.
