Empowering African fine arts
Meet the artists
Since completing his six months’ residency at the Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris in 2002, Stefanus Rademeyer briefly returned to South Africa but was awarded the Ampersand Foundation residency in New York in 2003.
His works were also included on a group exhibition hosted by Warren Siebrits entitled The Ampersand Foundation 1997-2003. In this prolific year Rademeyer presented a solo exhibition at the Warren Siebrits Modern and Contemporary Art in Johannesburg, South Africa, entitled Surface Depth and an exhibition at the Wits (University of Witwatersrand) Art Gallery entitled 20:20 Mapping Trajectories.
In 2006 he returned to the Warren Siebrits Gallery where he presented his second solo exhibition entitled Ideograph in which he explored his concerns with structural geometry. This exhibition was acclaimed for its abstract visual representations. For this exhibition Rademeyer was guided by his reading of selected theorists whose ideas center on the complexity of structures such as Deleuze, Heidegger Laing, Borges John Cage, Libeskind and others.
