as Rana Stofberg on a wine farm in Worcester, South
Africa (the Boland region), and a graduate of the University of
Stellenbosch, South Africa, Rana Muller has been living in Hastings, East
Sussex, where she has been teaching and painting for the past eight
years. Art has always been a
passion of hers, and she currently lives in South Yorkshire,
where she teaches and runs a small private gallery/studio.
About the art:
íMy artworks are abstract and
semi-abstract, and a channel other than verbal through which I can
express how I feel. I feel strongly about many issues -
social, political, cultural, educational, and I also have many
personal issues. Although my artwork does not always address
these issues directly, I am mostly driven to painting the feelings
or emotions aroused by them, as they are boiling
inside me, and need to be expressed. Nature is an important
inspiration, as is my family - and, at the end of the day, the
people who buy my art and commission paintings also inspire me to
keep on painting and expressing through this visual medium.
I love painting on large canvasses, using
bright and bold colours, either starkly contrasted, or one colour
flowing from another. My paintings start with a vision, feeling,
idea or emotion, and a vague shape in mind, and develop from there.
I can never predict exactly what the end result will be or look like
until the very last moment, when I realise that the painting has
reached completion. "
