Henk Serfontein's paintings have received widespread acclaim and he is one of South Africa's most recognised contemporary artists.
He holds a degree in Fine Art (cum laude) and has also studied at the Cite Internationale des Arts in Paris, France. He has lectured art at tertiary level, adjudicated national art competitions and is an accomplished curator of exhibitions.
Serfontein's symbolic stations of resting and waiting evoke a certain romantic nostalgia, a hopeful intimacy, a place for the traveller to rest his weary bones.
Yet they also contain a more sinister dimension. They are places of weariness, heightened suspiciousness, in which the viewer could be both welcomed guest and unwanted intruder. Most importantly you know you are alone here, it is dark and there is silence.
Serfontein's paintings ask you to listen inside and expose your soul.
