Surface Tension



  1. Karen Cronje

Cronje’s work explores a range of ideas centring around the notion of a dystopian view of the contemporary world, and reflects her interest in ideas around landscape, memory and the intersection of human interaction and the environment.

Her process is largely intuitive, guided by the ambiguity and mystery of intangible natural phenomena that often forms the starting point for many of her works, and informed by the digital manipulation of multiple visual references.


Karen Cronje is a painter who lives and works in Cape Town. She holds a BA in Visual Arts cum laude (1997) and an MA in Visual Arts (2001) from the University of Stellenbosch.
