ABOUT

LANA VENTER (DE VILLIERS)

LanaArtProfilePicSince I can remember, I have always loved being creative! Drawing and painting is the way I express myself. After nearly having lost sight in both my eyes, I am more determined than ever that I must use my artistic talent!

I currently live in Richardsbay, a coastal town in KwaZulu Natal, South African. I am originally from Pretoria.

I am an artist with a sense of adventure. I love visiting new natural settings while feeling the wind in my face. I am also quite fond of old architectural structures and buildings.

Through the use of art I can relive and explore my experiences – capturing textures and patterns; the interplay between light and colour.

I completed a degree in Landscape Architecture (BSc. L.Arch) at the University of Pretoria which greatly expanded my creative skills and enriched my walk as an artist.

While growing up, my family and I traveled through unique landscapes. As I am not a good ProfilePicMorcar-snoozer, I spent countless hours looking at the passing scenery. Thinking. Dreaming. Staring… Drinking in the landscape. Combine this with a little girl who distinguished between her right and left hand by testing with which one she could draw a flower, and, after many years of hard work and a passion for art, I became a full-time Artist.

WHAT INSPIRES ME?

I am filled with awe when I think of the marvel of sight itself.  I nearly lost my sight after a very serious bacterial infection. My right eye recovered much faster than the left, which took several months to stabilize. This life changing and challenging situation has made me even more determined to pursue my art career and be passionate about it. I consequently had a cornea transplant.  The healing process takes on average 12 months so I’m still waiting to have functional sight in my left eye. 

I believe that art has the power to capture the hearts of people – their attention and imagination. Unfortunately this powerful medium is also used to add to the confusion, meaninglessness and darkness that is part our world.

Creativity is one of the most obvious characteristics of God – this is evident in how creative He had been in all of Creation. I found it interesting that, according to the Bible, the first person of whom it was said to have been “filled with the Spirit” was Bezalel (see Exodus 31:1-5 & also 28:3) so that he would be able to make artistic designs.

In all that I do, including art, I want to honour my Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ. My artwork is an expression of worship to my King. It has been said that art is always a means and never an end in itself.”
