Katja Van den Enden’s mixed media works have the sheen of innovative artistry. Strong technique, the creative fusion of acrylics & resin and imaginative themes that include cellular patterns are her hallmarks.
–Connection, Acrylics/Resin, 12″x12″
Her works (literally) shine, to the point that Van den Enden says she has difficulty taking photographs.
I work with acrylics and resin to transform a minimalist painting into an almost three-dimensional, holographic image of multiple cellular patterns. I use resin in a painterly way, that invites the viewer in, wanting to touch the image and be part of it. -Artist statement
Van den Enden has a new show in the Newmarket area north of Toronto through the end of April.
