Biography

Joey Rautenbach

Joey Rautenbach was born in the Netherlands but spent the first three decades of her life in South Africa, Botswana and Namibia.
In Africa an appreciation of nature was cultivated as it was part of daily life. The attraction of the wide open spaces, the incredible beauty of the desert, the peace and serenity that the outdoors brings are characteristic qualities found in her paintings. Her formative years in these surroundings established the foundation for her inspiration and love for painting scenes from nature.
Since 1999, Joey resides in the UK. The first 5 years were spent in London and she currently resides in Scotland. Once again surrounded by nature that inspires, that awes and leaves one in no doubt of why one should be well prepared for the wild ruggedness and isolation, especially in the Highland's she finds herself living in constant inspiration. In her painting she captures the vast scenes that surrounds her, the incredible light that can only be found so far north in this hemisphere, and the seascapes with their incredible beauty and power.
All media she uses have been self taught. Her enjoyment comes from exploring different media, learning new techniques and going back to the root of the media to see how it is made, what the ingredients are, how she can continue and enhance her art by going back into traditions.

Other Information

Only highest quality oils and canvas is used. Joey enjoys studying the old masters and how they achieved colour and luminosity, the play of light and dark to achieve desired effects. She portrays the world around her the way she sees it, art is thus created from the mind and not from actual or photographic scenery.
For encaustic work she gets raw beeswax from a beekeeper in the south of Scotland. This is heated, cleaned and mixed with a resin to harden the wax. After this, pure pigment is mixed to get the desired colour. Various heat sources are used to melt the wax and thus create a picture. Encaustic can be traced back to the Egyptians, as it is lightfast many beautiful portraits can be found in museums around the world. Encaustic pictures are done on paper, canvas, wood and glass.
