25 Adriaan van Zyl

Adriaan van Zyl

Van Zyl paints aspects of himself by means of painting his environment. Although his paintings reflect restrained, but unmistakable passion, Van Zyl doesn’t paint his feelings directly – he paints what attracts his eye and the emotions and experiences that lie behind.
He offers the viewer a process of discovery, an examination of what exists in his surroundings, in particular times and places. This commitment to looking is part of what makes his small unassuming paintings such a source of continuing engagement for those who have interest and ability to also look at what van Zyl sees.
