How to Paint a Highway? by Wessel van Huyssteen

How to Paint a Highway? consists of a series of large scale watercolour on paper paintings, inspired by travels on the N1. It investigates this structure within the landscape as both a unifying and dystopian South African space. The subject matter mainly consists of debris collected on the shoulders of the highway and is painted in forensic detail - reminiscent of topographical art - to excavate the layered histories of the objects depicted.
