Wessel
van Huyssteen

Wessel van Huyssteen's body of work consists of a series of large scale watercolour on paper paintings, inspired by travels on the N1. The works investigate the structure of the highway in the the lanscape as both a dystopian and unifying South African space. 

 

The subject matter mainly consists of debris collected on the shoulders of the highway and is painted in forensic detail- reminiscent of topographical art - to excavate the layered histories of the objects depicted and the materials used.
