Dirk Meerkotter

South African 1922-2017 


In 1950, Dirk Meerkotter held his first solo exhibition at the Constantia Gallery in Johannesburg to great acclaim. He held a total of 87 solo exhibitions across South Africa and Namibia between 1951 and 2009 and participated in many group exhibitions in Southern Africa, Europe, Latin America, and the USA. Meerkotter also participated in the Florence and Sao Paulo Biennales in the seventies. In 1992 Meerkotter received a prestigious award from the FAK and, in 2001, he was awarded an honorary medal from the South African Association for Science and Art for his extraordinary contribution to the visual arts. Meerkotter was inspired by the vibrating world of line, colour (sound), texture, form, rhythm and space, which he endeavoured to portray with integrity in his paintings, etchings and ceramics.
