I can't remember how and when I first came to know of Strijdom van der Merwe, but I have been a devotee ever since.
Strijdom is a lanscape artist, using what ever he finds on site to create his art. He manipulates the local surroundings, bringing order into something so completely natural.
Becuase of the nature of his work, it is temporary. Fleeting. He captures it on photographs and that is all that remains.

I will be sharing much more of this great artist's work!
