Yanni van Zijl
SCULPTOR | CERAMICIST | MIXED MEDIA ARTIST
Whilst studying a Diploma of Fine Art she enjoyed the exploration of other creative mediums aside of her photography. She enjoys 3D work, particularly ephemeral and environmental installations whilst she continues exploration of form in ceramics. She recently added performance art and film into her skill set. Her work is repeatedly a comment or statement about the environment, her aim is that the work arouses discussion and awareness about the issues she chooses to highlight.
Ceramic sculpture is about the joy in creation and allowing the clay to have a say where the artist must relinquish control.
