Albert Coertse

Albert Coertse is originally from Pretoria, where his studies commensed but now lives in Cape Town.
Coertse is an artist whose paintings have evolved from figurative formations into abstraction with a focus on geometric composition and refracted landscape imagery. He specialises in oils on a variety of boards as his pre- ferred medium. Coertse holds qualifications in Communication Design attained at the Open Window Art Acade- my, Pretoria, Interactive Design at Malmö Högskola, Sweden and a bachelors degree in Industrial Design from the Cape Peninsula University of Technology. The distinctive style for which Coertse is known is illustrated in his use of linear-like grids. The landscape is intuitively dissected by dynamically placed diagonal lines creating a sense of movement, which contrasts with the purity of shape and colour.
