Annie Le Roux
Annie has a Diploma in Fine Art and Printmaking from The Ruth Prowse Art School where she studied under Eric Laubscher and Jonathan Comerford. She has complimentary qualifications in Clinical Hypno -Therapy, and other healing modalities and has worked with Death and Dying for many years. This often unspoken aspect of life, its delicacy, fragility, the beauty of decay and the ethos surrounding our human-ness (being human) is a constant presence in her art as is the transient and ephemeral nature of things.
In 2014 she exhibited as part of FLOW – a local art event at the Whitehouse Venue & Theatre in Plettenberg. She has been involved with the Site_Specific Land Art Biennale in Plettenberg Bay, and Stories of Rain – the South African leg of the Global Nomadic Art Project. Annie were also on hand for The Mantis project in the Tankwa for the 2015 Afrikaburn – helping to construct the Mantis with the Elandsvlei community – and she is an active contributor of Afrikaburn’s Outreach project.
Annie’s fine art ranges from mixed media and charcoal landscapes, portraits and figures to intricately detailed ink on paper drawings. Sometimes her work is created in a series, usually inspired by a specific place.
Annie le Roux’s work echoes the simplicity of natural cells. Using natural shapes and textures found on site in discrete subtle colour combinations, it is reminiscent of pre-historic mark making and enigmatic rock art of the Khoi-San. Mother Earth and her effect on the human psyche is the source of Annie’s inspiration. She sees Nature as her mentor, muse and healer.
Annie le Roux resides and practises in Plettenberg Bay, a beautiful coastal town in the Garden Route region of South Africa.
