Notes

Harold Voigt is a painter of landscapes, interiors, abstract works and the human figure. Voigt concentrates on textural qualities, light and colour, derived from the African landscape. He often uses primitive African motifs and works in a wide range of mixed-media techniques incorporating sand, marble dust, wax and oil.


“My paintings are all consciously rendered to give the impression of reality but are based largely on recollections of disparate memories. The subject matter in this work derives from the observation of winter sunlight streaming through the studio window. The figure seen through the window had perhaps been sitting in the chair and now confronts the viewer (or himself) from the outside in a metaphysical way.
