Notes

Walter Voigt grew up on the Lowveld escarpment near Nelspruit in Mpumalanga. His work draws on the landscapes of his youth which he imbues with the dramatic unpredictability of nature.

“The early morning sunlight warming its way across a cold, wintry Limpopo landscape is what inspired me to paint this scene. The horizon bathed in sunlight, contrasting cleanly with the shadowy foreground provided me with a clear insight into nature’s celebration of a new day.”
