Leni Kae's rhythmic swirls of concentrated color explore human psychology as revealed through aesthetics. However, her artistic prowess is evident not only in her ability to adeptly mix shimmering shades of pigment, but in her dexterity in handling line and shape. The artist's richly hued oils on canvas attempt to examine the human mind's attraction toward and preference for certain colors and in doing so, merge Kae's understanding of the complex science of color with her unmistakable eye for design. The powerful effects of color, which can enhance and alter moods, trigger hormonal reactions, and awaken dormant memories, are vital to Kae's dually artistic and scientific mission. Therefore, although each painting is undoubtedly a beauty to behold, it is also a continuing experiment in color science, constantly interacting with new viewers, eliciting emotions, choices and preferences.
The child of a master mathematician, Leni Kae naturally discovered the unbreakable link between art and science. As a trained color therapist and artist, Leni Kae lives and works in Australia and exhibits internationally.
