7 May 2022 - 28 May 2022

To celebrate the 80th birthday of renowned and versatile Pretoria artist Isa Steynberg, the Association of Arts Pretoria will be exhibiting several works of art in different media.
 
 
 
“When I was about two and a half years of age, I discovered that I could draw with a little stick in clean, damp sand.  I found my medium through which I could express all that I observed.  Since then I have not ceased to draw or model everything I could lay my hands on - from the soap in the bathroom to my food.  The little pieces of scrap gypsum in the studio of my father (the sculptor Coert Steynberg) were my first drawing chalk on the cement floor.”
 
 
 
Isa studied art at school and thereafter.  In 1960 she was at the Royal College of Art in London where she also spent all her free time in museums and galleries.  She also studied graphic art in Paris.  “I devoured art books to master different techniques and my training as sculptor was in the studio of my father.  My inspiration still comes from art, nature, music, poetry, philosophy, psychology and the wonderworld introduced by science.  My biggest concern is about the damage caused by the greed of human beings.”
