About my Work

AO

Annemie Odendaal is a curious, contemporary South African Artist. Being a conceptual artist, she goes wherever the subject at hand takes her. This multidisciplinary artist is most known for her exquisite linocuts, but also does sculpting, painting, charcoal sketches, etching, pen and ink, photography, embroidery as well as surface pattern design.

“After finalizing my concept and research, I take time to think what medium will suit this concept best. How can I strengthen the message through my medium, and only then do I decide about the execution style of the series. For me the medium is secondary to the concept, although I sometimes like to experiment with various mediums in a series to see how they impact each other.”

She doesn’t follow the traditional artist route of selling only through galleries, and prefer to entertain people in her studio with demonstrations and walkabouts.

🖤🐰🖤 Welcome to my artist page. Here I would like to share my art adventure with you, as I learn, experiment and develop it. Although I studied art before – BA(Fine Arts) Information Design degree at the University of Pretoria – I didn’t enjoy being a designer. That’s when I took a 20 year break, exploring other businesses, and travelling extensively. Five years ago I made the leap to become an artist - although it was very risky -  but looking back, I had absolutely no idea of where this new adventure would lead me and that it would be this fulfilling and amazing 🙌🏻.⁠
⁠
This journey has been so rewarding and I love being able to fulfill my passion and share it with you. I like to get to know my fellow art lovers personally, so I update my website and social media regularly, and invite you to pop in at my studio.⁠
⁠
I am inspired and fascinated by the human spirit and the balance between beauty and ugliness in everything I encounter in my everyday life, love and travels. Even though life can be fragile and fleeting, still I’d like to stand still for a moment and reflect on those things that make this journey worthwhile, and hopefully inspire you too.🥰⁠
⁠
Sometimes I feel that I can never be enough; other times that I am way too much. The truth is, I am more than I ever imagined I could be.⁠
⁠
🥂So, for the old friends, I want to say thank you for encouraging me to take this leap of faith. For the new friends, thank you for adding value to my life. For the teachers and mentors, thank you for inspiring me.⁠
⁠
Don't miss my next newsletter, where you will be able to read more about how this adventure of mine started.⁠
