Contemporary artist Georganna Lenssen’s work is anchored in representational subject matter as a point of departure. With no predetermined end in mind, she works intuitively and responsively, exploring possibilities and directions as part of her process. While constantly referencing the natural world, she creates an image that is unpredictable, ambiguous and evocative. Her work stands out for its intensity, mood and complexity of the painted surface.
Part of her approach is to challenge herself by working outside of her comfort zone. She constantly changes her colors and their order on her palette, often randomly, and varies her surface choices, their sizes and orientations. The end result is unexpected—to her and the viewer.
