Jeremy Hollmann: rock art

What started 30 years ago as a passion for rock art developed into professional engagement. Over the past 17 years I worked as a research officer at the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa, as a curator at the KwaZulu-Natal Museum in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa and most recently, as an independent specialist.

It is a special feeling to visit ancient rock art sites and spend time in the presence of the symbols of an ancient tradition. There are many different traditions of rock art– paintings and engravings – across the subcontinent. We’re spoilt for choice in southern Africa! I’d love to take you to some of the world’s best rock art.

With over 17 years of working professionally with rock art, I am your “go-to” person for Rock Art Management Services, wherever in the world these might be required. I give presentations on rock art topics to a variety of audiences, from syllabus-related presentations to school students, school outings to rock art sites, to special interest audiences, including seminars and lectures. I love research and writing! It’s about exploring and communicating the way that people have created and shared their ideas and beliefs in the form of what we call rock art. The rock art itself is only the tangible remains of a bigger picture – and that’s what keeps me intrigued.
