      In December, 2017, Walter Meyer was stabbed in the heart with a kitchen knife by his wife, Sophia. Dubbed "South Africa's own van Gogh" and critically acclaimed as the finest landscape artist to emerge from this country in the last century, his brutal death left a deep void. Born in the mid 60's, Meyer was frequently seen as part of the "Voelvry" Afrikaans rebel generation. He however preferred to dedicate his being to one thing only – to paint. His substantial body of work often explored the desolate Karoo. It broke landscape traditions by using light and shadows to depict the often futile attempts of humans to conquer the hinterland. Like countless creatives, Meyer struggled with his demons and increasingly turned to the bottle which would eventually lead to his brutal ending. Written by his brother, Frans, along with rare insights from Walter's rehab journals, Impossible Skies explores the artist's roots, his genius as a painter and a poignant relationship between two brothers.
