Rory Prinsloo / Visual Artist
Born in Johannesburg 1964
Rory works from his studio in Johannesburg Lanseria as well as his studio in Italy.
His art is created as a result of wanting to express his thoughts about life and existence. This theme is present in all the work he creates. Sometimes subtly and at times dominant but always forms the basis of the intent of his work.
Rory has produced a lot of commercial art work for his mannequin business over the last 25 years and a small amount of his own inspired visual art during that time. Currently he is working almost full time on a series of personal visual art projects. These projects include sculpture, drawing, painting and prints.
Rory has this to say about the space he finds himself in at this time and his intent for the work he is producing.
“For such a long time I have wanted to pursue my personal artistic ideas full time. Finally that time is here. I say be careful of what you wish for. Rather than this time being an outpouring of my pent up ideas carried around in my head for such a long time. I have had to learn that making personal art with integrity is much more difficult than producing competent commercial art commissioned by clients.
My current projects are asking a lot from me. A lot more than I thought they would. I am learning to express my “ self “ and be clear about my intent in my work. Clarity is not that easy to come by and I am learning that gaining clarity and transferring it into my work is a process.
As is art. As is life. My intent is to keep producing work with this in mind”.
