Leni Kae’s artwork “The Evolution of Blue: 6 days to Sunday” is a finalist in the Georges River Art Prize, 2019.
This 6-piece artwork series is an abstract representation of the physical landscape, mirroring the emotional landscape of healing from emotional hardship. The colour transition depicts the journey of healing from ‘being blue’ to lighter emotions reflected by lighter colours towards Sunday; ‘the day of light’, marking a new beginning.

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.
