Kali van der Merwe


Kali van der Merwe’s main artistic explorations take place in the dark, with the night as her photographic darkroom. Kali blurs boundaries between painting and photography with long exposures and a technique called ‘light painting’. Her work traverses nuanced interconnection between death and life, searching for the soul of form with light.

Kali sees herself as a visual advocate on behalf of fragile and threatened wild animals and plants.
