About Sas Kloppers
I mounted my first exhibition in 1990 in Swakopmund, Namibia, on invitation of the Die Muschel Gallery, exhibiting a series of works inspired by the rock art of the Brandberg. Since 1990 I have exhibited widely in South Africa and Africa. Africa’s colour, rhythm, lore and rituals serve as inspiration for my work. I interpret all in my own style, medium and technique, subtly incorporating earthly materials when called for by the theme.
“. . . images not out of step with a culturally re-awaking continent; of Africa’s striving to empower herself through the invocation of her myth and mythology; bring to the fore what is often missing in contemporary African art, the spirituality that underlies African cosmology and trans-symbolism.”
