Wendy Kawabata: Here Comes the Sun - Art Collector

Wendy Kawabata, ‘Geode II’, 2018. Oil on canvas, 45.7 x 45.7cm. Courtesy: the artist and Sanderson Contemporary.

‘Here Comes the Sun’ is a firm return to painting. The exhibition is a selection of Wendy Kawabata's recent investigations into colour, light, and textile structure within abstraction. These paintings of polygonal cairns, bucolic settings, and geometric networks, are colourful totems made to empower and charm.

Apart from when polygonal cairns are centrally presented, colour is not used to describe, rather its presence both suggests and undermines space and form. These cairns serve as trail markers for and personifications of the painter, signposts enabling her to wander a bit but make her way back to the path.
