BIOGRAPHY

Kay Fourie completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts Honors at the University of the Free State in 1987, with a distinction in sculpture. For the past 33 years she has been living on a sheep farm near a very small village called Philipstown. The landscape and its relationship with humankind has been a deep well of inspiration and research topic for this artist. Part of this research led to a series of drawings and prints relating to the construction of a wind farm in the landscape. Community projects have also flowed from exactly this human/landscape relationship to demonstrate the impact humans have on the landscape and vice versa.

In 2019 she was awarded a prize at the Phatshoane Henney New Breed Art Competition; and has subsequently earned the opportunity to participate in the 2020 Finalist’s exhibition at the Phatshoane Henney Gallery.
