Ryno Greeff

Artist Bio, CV and statement.
“My name is Ryno Greeff (1966-) and I am a Nieu Bethesda based sculptor creating sculptures from stone and steel.
Currently I have a permanent outdoor installation of stone figures, carefully placed in the landscape near Nieu Bethesda in the Eastern Cape, and it is called Stonefolk of Ongeluksloot and can be viewed 24/7 on the Farm Doornberg just outside of town.
I have completed several private commission pieces:
Hennopsriver – Man on the mountain, Thinker, Covid, Klara, Fossil Horse, Stokstert dog.
Sunninghill – Sky man.
Stellenbosch – Dogs best friend, De Zalze: The Philosopher.
Springbok – Lady of the stone.
Noblesfontein – Francois.

Exhibitions:
Rocking the Karoo (1921) MOK art gallery Muratie Wine Estate Stellenbosch.

The inspiration for my sculptures comes from the stone sculptures of Kaokoland as well as “The Dance” by Marcella de Boom near Loxton and of course Helen Martins of the Owl house in Nieu Bethesda as well as the incredible landscape found near the town of Nieu Bethesda.
I am constantly inspired by the interaction between the viewer and my sculptures. These interactions happen in many forms, with viewers mimicking the stance and engaging with the sculptures in many different and unexpected ways including climbing up the hills to be photographed next to them, sunglasses being placed on them and left there etc.etc. It gives me great joy to create these sculptures.”
