Liekie Fouché is a South African artist who produces eclectic works, simultaneously recollecting the European Renaissance, African landscape and modern Space Age. Mystical figures set against a backdrop of quiet landscapes and planets create a holy sentiment in a holistic and Jungian sense.
Working primarily in oil pastel and graphite pencil with multiple layers of varnish on board, her work resembles classic oil paintings. Single elements of collage are often added, creating an unexpected interaction between the drawn technique and photography.
Her meditative process allows images from her internal reality via the conscious, the unconscious and subconscious, often appearing as silhouettes and shadows of plants and animals, UFOs, airplanes and angels in contemplation.
