I’m inspired by color, marks, and marrying materials in fresh ways to discover what emerges. From there, I distract myself in any way possible while I finish a piece, so that my mind doesn’t interfere with the process. Nothing good ever comes of that.

His fulfilling journey evolved significantly in 2019 when he commenced mentorship under Dr Elfriede Dreyer, Professor Extraordinarius. This introduction to the broader spectrum of art concepts and history created the opportunity for Van der Wath to express himself through experiences in his world of business, engineering, and psychology.

Growing up in Central Ohio, his link to the outside art world came in the form of art magazines. Perusing these magazines was both inspirational and directional.

I was always fascinated with the idea that colors can have an effect on our emotional, physical, and mental states. Examples of this can be found in the expressions, “Seeing Red,” or “Having the Blues.” I like to use bright bold colors set against each other in a geometric structure to create positive motion and energy. I have exhibited in a number of exhibitions over the past year including Van Der Plas Gallery, 440 Gallery, and SITE Gallery in New York City, La Galleria Pall Mall (two different shows) in London and Chie Gallery in Milan Italy. This Spring/Summer (depending on Covid 19) I am scheduled to be at VanDer Plas Gallery, Colorida Gallery (Lisbon, Portugal) and Saatchi-The Other Art Fair in Los Angeles.

I have been expressing my joy of art with paint, shapes and colors since I was very young. I started as a painter, evolved into a photographer, and eventually began hand-painting on my Cibachrome prints over 35 years ago. Before Photoshop I found a way to expressa new magical reality with the vivid, saturated and unrealistic color. I painted into each photographic print.
