In 2006 Gwen Anderson re-emerged in her artistic element when living in New York after she joined the Art Students League. In 2008 she moved to London where she kept her artistic rhythm by joining various courses in a variety of disciplines such as mixed media painting, experimental drawing, fine art photography, live drawing and art history. In 2010 she enrolled at The Sir John Cass Faculty of Art, Media and Design at the Metropolitan University in London, where she later attended the Faculty of Art, Architecture and Design, and completed her Masters in Fine Arts (Hons), Merit in 2014. During her stay in London she participated in many exhibitions, alternating between London and Curaçao.
When she moved to Tokyo the next year, she immersed herself into travelling, creating art and participating in exhibitions.
In 2018 she moved back to Curaçao where she continued creating art and participated in many group exhibitions to this day.
The paintings exhibited in this show, consist of multiple layers. In some of the works she uses silver leaf as a ‘clean slate’ on which colors, figures or images reflect themselves. The grids of tarnished silver leaf organize a silence onto which forms, or photographic images are placed as output from lifetime impressions. Other works are layers of encaustic, pigment, ink and shellac. The unpredictable nature of the materials and the hypnotic flame of her torch, help her to disappear into a meditative, focused state as she creates.
You are invited: bring your family to the second Easter Craft Fair in the gardens of Landhuis Bloemhof where you can enjoy locally made Easter crafts and decorations, locally made wellness, hair & body care products, locally made candles, oils and home care products, plants, seeds and locally grown fruits and vegetables, regular, vegan and vegetarian snacks and sweets and much more.
