About  ‘Liefde Leegte / Love Loss’ & Varenka Paschke
Salon91 is proud to present Liefde Leegte / Love Loss Varenka Paschke’s latest collection of paintings depicted in her signature style, characterized by her unique ‘canvases’, made up of eclectic blocks of fabric, colour, texture & pattern, skillfully married with her sensitive treatment of line, light, & a subtle palette in her largely figurative oil paintings.

Varenka Paschke was born in Cape Town, South Africa during 1976. She holds a BA degree in Drama & Psychology from the University of Stellenbosch, as well as a BA in Fine Art, which she attained from the Michaelis School of Fine art  (UCT) in 2001, where she majored in painting. Varenka has been exhibiting extensively since the late nineties in Johannesburg & Cape Town within South Africa, and has also shown her work in a number of cities internationally, including Barcelona, London, Antwerp & Munich to mention but a few. The artist also completed a residency program in Barcelona during 2005, and has been involved in a number of public art projects and corporate, as well as private commissions, both locally and abroad. During 2002 she was nominated as a finalist in the Absa Young Artist of the Year Awards, and in 2005 as a finalist in the Sasol New Signatures Competition. Varenka currently lives and works between Antwerp, Belgium and Cape Town, South Africa with her husband Stef Bos and their children.
