Du Plessis is an expressionist painter. The overall theme of her work revolves around the organic cyclical movements yet intertwined gestures that seek balance in the fantastical nature towards a state of equanimity. She references nests, dream catchers, pods and flowers generally at the end of their cycle, twisted and drying trying to convey the fine line between what has been and what is being born, that narrow space between light and dark where darkness is not an abyss but a place of reflection. In doing so she plays on the edge between drawing and painting. The ultimate image is not a representation but mere contemplation into a moment of her world which she believes in universal.
