Sydney artist Leni Kae is a finalist in the Mandorla Art Award with her artwork “The Ways I Feel When You Call My Name”; a 9-piece watercolour series on 300gsm paper.
The religious art prize calls for a reflection on a verse from the Bible:
‘’He has told you, O mortal, what is good; and what does THE LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness and to walk humbly with your God?”
“To me, the essence of what is required of us, is LOVE. The choice to give love, and the journey of growth from experiencing love, is the purpose and essence of what connects us. Love is also reflected to us in nature; when we give it love, it returns both sustenance and spiritual healing.
The reflection of love through nature is what I explore in this artwork. I take 9 abstract representations of the landscape and reflect on how different kinds of love each plays a part in our growth and healing; romantic love, friendship, love for a child, self-love, passionate love, family, mature love, love reborn, spiritual love.
– Leni Kae, Artist & Illustrator www.lenikae.com.au
The abstract river represents a ‘break’ in the emotional self that seeks healing. The flowing patterns of leaf forms symbolise growth, renewal, connection. The 9 pieces reflect the number’s spiritual significance.”

In Leni Kae’s abstract landscape series “Healing Landscapes”, she is inspired by nature and landscapes; and their connection to the emotional landscape of human nature.
Her artwork ‘Illawarra Flame Tree: Heart of the Bold‘ , explores the relationship between pain and strength by looking at the Illawarra Flame Tree as a symbol for that subject.
The Illawarra Flame tree commands attention. It is the colour of blood, pain, hard work, resilience, power, passion. It does not go unseen. So, in this piece, Sydney artist Leni Kae explores a connection to this beautiful tree that demands existence without apology. She depicts the emotional landscape of pain through the background and the ‘broken’ looser sections of the painting; and resilience through the layers of forms.
Essentially, the artwork speaks of having the boldness of heart to embrace even the most turbulent of journeys as a source of growth and empowerment.
The stunning red abstract landscape painting is pictured in the photo in a suggested interior styling setting. With warm red colour tones, the artwork suits complementing colours of warm brown wood or cool grey tones.
