Simon Venter uses the traditional approaches and medium of oil painting to create artworks reflecting both contemporary and historic approaches to art. Individual and collective lifestyles inspire and their stories are told by means of a traditional, formal approach while experimental elements are handled in a more abstract manner.

“An Error in Perception” relates to the juxtaposition of realistic and abstract elements which pertain to alienation and identity within the norms of society. On a conceptual level, it demonstrates how identity can be shaped by cultural norms and societal dictates. Only when individuals commit to actively forming their own identity can they be transformed from cultural silhouettes to fully functional, integrated individuals.

Venter’s series entitled “Fragmentation” deals with alienation and identity as he reinterprets this through the crisis of the pandemic as a metaphor to bring home the inherent tendency of alienation in humans.
