SELECT WORKS / 2013 – 2023

Over the last decade, South African fine art photographer Krisjan Rossouw has established himself globally for his unmistakably distinct approach to contemporary portraiture that celebrates the beauty, strength and resilience of Africa and her people.

Self-taught, with no formal art or photographic study, Rossouw developed his unique chiaroscurist photographic technique from continued experimentation with non-traditional light sources, mixing and layering luminance and temperature to capture his striking models from the African continent and diaspora.

This year marks the 10th anniversary of Rossouw’s practice since his debut solo exhibition, Dark Paradise in 2013. His body of work has since grown to include eight photographic projects and collaborations, solo and group exhibitions and art fairs worldwide, and a growing collector’s base that includes The United States, Canada, England, Ireland, Scotland, France, Spain, Portugal, Italy, The Netherlands, Switzerland, Sweden, China, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, United Arab Emirates, Germany, Belgium, Denmark, Norway, Russia, Mauritius and across Africa.

KRX at The Gallery at Grande Provence, Franschhoek, is Rossouw’s third solo exhibition at the gallery. The select works on show represent a capsule retrospective of the artist’s practice over the last decade, along with some as yet un-exhibited works and a preview of his current ongoing 2023 project, Obscura.
