Painterly marks not only make up subjects but are subjects in themselves. – Heidi Fourie

Heidi Fourie spent some time at Warren Editions in 2016 creating monotypes. As a painter, Fourie used her transition to the monotype medium to experiment with new ways of making marks, adding to and interrogating her mark-making language. In her painting practice, Fourie constantly explores formal concerns to make sense of order and chaos, control and uncontrollability, figuration and its negation in the picture plane.

Fourie draws her subject matter from daily encounters and from existing media such as film and virtual spaces. She has recently started exploring the internet as an alternative and somewhat distorted means of travel and exploration, while some paintings are based on physical travels and scenes from the garden of her childhood home. “All of the places depicted, whether found virtually or on physical visits, are borrowed from its owners and transformed into new fictional spaces”.

Fourie completed her BA Fine Arts (cum laude) in 2012 at the University of Pretoria. She has participated in a number of group exhibitions in Pretoria, Johannesburg, Cape Town, Port Elizabeth and Antwerp. She has also been a finalist in the Sasol New Signatures competition (2011, 2013), ABSA l’Atelier (2013, 2014), Thami Mnyele Fine Art Awards (2012, 2013) and the Sanlam Portrait Award (2013, 2015).
