Artist, poet, author, ceramicist and sculptor Thijs Nel will be exhibiting a range of his works at Gallery88 in Paarl from 14 to 27 June 2012. Regarding his art Nel is quoted as saying "For as long as I can remember, art has been a means of coming to terms with my immediate environment. I have to find a balance between nature and that which is man-made, including the art work itself. Something universal and satisfying, something beautiful, should enter into this balance. Working in the service of these qualities is a dynamic process which should keep me occupied for the rest of my life."
Thijs Nel paints in a variety of media, using his individualistic, lightweight touch with equal success. His work features in the collections of the Oppenheimers, Ruperts, Johannesburg Art Gallery, Lichtenburg Art Musum, Roodepoort Museum, Pietersburg City Council Collection, National Museum of Botswana and the the Cité-Internationale-des-Arts in Paris, France, Musée des Beaux Art in Montreal, Longhouse Foundation Trust in New York, as well as in private collections in England, Scotland, the USA, France, Holland, Israel, Ethiopia, Japan and South Africa.
