Leni Kae’s colourful artworks are an aesthetic and emotional journey captured through colour, flowing patterns, linework, and dripping paint; infused with the symbolic attributes of the subject and composition. Leni Kae’s current abstract landscape series “Healing Landscapes” explores a connection to nature and place – the real and the imagined – and how it reflects the emotional healing landscape of the self. In each piece, the intentionally rhythmic patterns of petals/leaf forms stand as a symbol of blossoming growth and renewal; with colour and dripping paint intentionally applied to reflect emotional release and resolution.
