South African Artist Depicts Abstract Landscapes

Christie Niederhumer is a Cape Town-based art tutor who creates mesmerizing abstract landscapes and portraiture. With her work, the artist tries to create a kind of visual poetry and to evoke particular feelings.

She says that she has been exploring the connection between the states of the emotional mind and translating that into her dramatic, abstract landscape paintings. “As humans, we are closely interconnected to nature, there is a sense of familiarity and comfort despite,” the artist shared on Bored Panda. “The landscapes are all links of my Austrian roots, a type of longing in my blood to reconnect and recreate the nostalgic imagery, and translating that in an emotive way, they are essentially landscapes of my emotional mind, embodied through suggestions of nature onto canvas.”

Niederhumer shares her art on her social media accounts, and on her personal website. Scroll down and check out her work below. We really enjoyed browsing through her Instagram account and we believe you will enjoy it, too.
