Leni Kae’s artwork “Reach of Sunrise Through the Fjord” is a finalist in the Heysen Prize for Landscape 2020.

An abstract landscape inspired by Port Davey Tasmania, “The Reach of Sunrise Through the Fiord” draws on the poetic parallel between the external visual landscape and the internal emotional experience. As sunrise and light pours through a fiord, there is a sense that it calls on viewers to witness a new day and breathe in new possibilities; to reflect on the travels and new experiences hidden beyond the fjord.

Reflecting a flow of emotional response to this scene, watercolour becomes an essential medium in the expressive experience and process. Layers of linework are then applied as reflective of the light and energy of the landscape connecting to the human emotional experience. Sunlight is expressed using thicker acrylic overtones including fluoro pink and yellow lines, reaching through the fjord and across the landscape; carrying a message to boldly accept the new day, adventure, and the challenge of new beginnings.

EXHIBITION DATES:

Exhibition launch  – 6pm Saturday 12 December 2020

Exhibition dates – 12 December 2020 –14 February 2021

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?”

Artist Statement:

“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.


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.”
