Life on Venus III | The Organic, Timed Auction08 FEBRUARY 2021 - 26 FEBRUARY 2021
"My work explores contemporary life through figuration and the relationship between us and our environment. I interpret this through the medium of painting, questioning how we internalize and ultimately externalize our experiences.
The imagery prevalent in my work is gathered from a variety of sources including sketches, photography, writing, paintings and memories. It is autobiographical in essence and reflects meaningful experiences throughout my life encompassing grief, loss, joy, love and the multitude of complex relationships we all encounter. At times there is poignancy to my work, but this is typically countermanded by a sense of hope." - Jen Wyse, 2020
