“linking the narrative” by Wilani van Wyk-Smit & Chris Jensen

February 14, 2019

By  Evan James

This exhibition is a collaboration between two abstract artists with different backgrounds, stories and techniques, exploring form, colour and meaning.

Wilani van Wyk-Smit:

“I am interested in cycles of insight and perception. My paintings are created through responses to the way objects relate to one another. How one motion affects the next is a continuing source of fascination for me.”

Wilani is a Melbourne based abstract artist and creative director of Wildeye, a graphic design and web development studio. She lives and works in the magnificent Yarra Valley.

Wilani’s work explores changing perspectives and the meaning we attach to the things we see. Her work is held in local and international private collections. She has participated in numerous group exhibitions in Australia and overseas.

Chris Jensen:

Chris Jensen is an abstract painter who works from his home studio in Mount Evelyn in the Yarra Valley. His paintings feature shapes and textures found observing other cultures during a decade living in Asia and Pacific, and now in his day job in international aid worker.

Chris’ paintings seek to be interesting, never mundane. While they may be enjoyable and likeable to observe they are first and foremost deeply personal, containing symbols that reflect the environment, community, urbanism and big questions in life, as well as making good use of late nights waiting for sleep to arrive.
