This morning I stumbled on the beautiful Instagram feed of Amor Coetzee and I rushed over to her website.

Dayfeels is the creative sobriquet of South African artist and photographer, Amor Coetzee. Amor grew up in a small Eastern Cape seaside town, Gonubie and later moved to the beautiful city of Cape Town where she has been living and working for the past 6 years.

The inspiration for her work stems from a deep appreciation for the landscape, the ocean and the properties of water. These elements have had the most significant influence on her current artworks.

The hues, ripples and reflections, the immense power and the calm. It is her muse. Amor is very drawn to a clean and muted aesthetic and work through a process of elimination, starting out with a lot of detail and removing bit by bit until only the very essence remains. Her work tries to communicate a sense of calm, as subtle as susurrus.

Dayfeels Illustrations are based on aphorisms- a metaphorical phrase which embodies a feeling, these phrases are used to create simple line drawings.

Bodies, explores the simple gestures exchanged between lovers

Shygirl, is an ongoing narrative of a charming recluse trying to come to terms with big city life.

An extension of her artworks, the ceramic side of Dayfeels, lets her experiment more with texture, contrast, abstract shapes and patterns to create hand-made, one of a kind earthernware pieces.
