4. Alix Corte
Don’t Move | Oil on linen, 76x100cm
Artist | With a background in commercial art and publishing, Cape Town-born Alix Korte creates bold, colourful works that utilise the techniques learned in her years as a graphic designer. Inspired by the majesty and power of the sea, many of her paintings include water as she strives to capture the vibrancy and dynamism of life both above and below the surface. Her love of animals is evident in her many portrayals of working dogs, farm animals and sea creatures. Using bold brushstrokes, and a selection of oil paint, thin glazes and oil pastels on canvas and pure linen, Alix’s work draws the viewer into the freedom and playfulness of the scene.
