    Luna Vermeulen
    As a young 16 year old I struggled with depression and as a consequence left High School in the middle of 10th Grade but finished my Matric through home schooling. It was during this difficult period that my mom encouraged me to get a hobby. My sister was the one who loved everything to do with art & so one day I started fiddling around with her oil paints, much to her dismay. My first few attempts were plain hideous but through the eyes of my mom they were perfect. I don't know what she saw in those first few, maybe it's just a mother's biased view, but I know that if it wasn't for her prodding me on I would have left my brushes to gather dust long ago.

    Today almost 18 years on I am a Contemporary Realist working in oil, much more comfortable in my medium of choice. Painting has become my passion & I can't imagine my life without it.
    • Artist Statement
      • I don't identify my paintings as a piece of art, more so a visual representation of the inner exertion of a metamorphic cycle, a constantly evolving transmogrification. Vivisecting my inner boundaries, an insurrection against the shackles of my own predisposition. Much like a butterfly struggling to force her swollen body through the minute opening she managed to force in her cocoon, a painful yet necessary parturition. Should you incise the cocoon she will emerge easily however her tumescent body contorted with crippled shrivelled wings. The painful struggle of extricating herself from her restricted penitentiary forces the superfluous fluid from her body into her wings, nurturing and preparing them for flight once freedom is achieved.
