Artist's Statement

Wendy Anziska's work continues to reveal an intense concern and response to living in contemporary times. Her intuitive faculties connect her through world and personal events to her search for understanding. These explorations are developed in rich, powerful paintings that continue to fascinate and excite art lovers.

Her recent work is thoughtful, quirky, serious, rich and beautifully painted and filled with images relating to contemporary times and the impact of world events. They are the work of an artist painting with enhanced liberation both technically and conceptually.
