South Africa Born in: 1969

Adéle du Plessis

The Artist Sheet of Adéle du Plessis. Let us get to meet the lady behind the art.


Who is she artistically?

She is a Painter and sculptor, or wherever the creative process takes her. Found Cities 2017 is a good example of an intersection of her different creative talents.


What is her style?

Broad brush strokes with a lot of texture. Colourful, interplay between pastels and saturated primary colours. Dreamer 2018 is a great example of her use of pastels and Museum Café Groningen 2017 a great example of her use of saturated colours and broad brush strokes.


Why is her style special?

Her work is easy to look at, explores art history through your own technique as well as researching small details of life that are distilled pieces of a greater emotion or life. The style is also familiar to many and painted in the style of Expressionist and Impressionist from the 20th century.


Museum Café Groningen 2017 combines her own life as an artist, an art lover, Art History, art institutions and the art community in one picture. She has a beautiful way of creating meta view of the world and art in small moments captured in painting.


What are your qualifications as an artist?

Studied Art at the University of Pretoria in South Africa, been making art for more than 30 years. Will paint anything from walls, to tables, to body casts to floors. The painting process is always ongoing.


Du Plessis is inspired by the world she lives in and her technique reflecting what she has absorbed. An example hereof is her Stained Glass piece which she created after her trip to Reims, France.



What does your art mean to you?

Art allows for small fragments of yourself that does not conjunct with society and it needs a voice, art gives it a language. Creating art settles mind and spirit. Finally the unsaid is given a voice.


In 2012, Du Plessis did an exercise in loosening creative energy and in retrospect also tapping into the subconscious. Her Unnamed painting was the culmination of a process of hundreds of art work on paper. It was a constant process with varying results on stack and stacks of roughly A3 paper and finally this painting.
