Wendy Cohen was born in Cape Town, South Africa but resides in Sydney, Australia. She is a graduate of the National Art School, achieving a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 2015 and a Master of Fine Arts in 2017. Wendy's practice focuses on the relationship of shapes, lines, forms and colours with the relationship of natural and urban surroundings communicated in a painterly abstracted language. Her paintings are a visual syntax that entices the viewer to engage in the joy of her oeuvre as the pageantry of the visual field of hues, shapes, light and shadows create a playful freedom of expression. With a sense of curiosity, exploration and discovery, a lyrical gentre is created that results in spontaneous mark making as well as an exciting interplay between the shapes, forms and colours imbued with the ebb and flow of textured sweeping brushstrokes and the alchemy of a variation of colours. Wendy interprets colours with the sounds of the soul as being the transcendental essence of music to give her paintings a whimsical expression that captures the beauty of creation as well as her cultural influences.
