Gordon Wiens’ Form and Formlessness provides an alternative
to the intense experience of modern day living through its subdued colour p
alette\, textural elements and ordered forms. “I offer my current paintings
as objects for self-immersion - quiet spaces for contemplation and the opp
ortunity to find balance and perspective.”
The viewer recognizes the g eometric strips layered upon one another\, iconic of Wiens’ style\, however in this latest series\, flecks of bright pink and fresh greens emerge thro ugh the many bands of whites and greys. The process is both intricate and h ighly detailed\, with careful attention paid to where each form is placed\, yet it is also a meditative and tranquil one\, describes Wiens.
“I am inspired by the processes of nature more than nature itself. It is the ess ence of this that is evident in my work\, visible in the co-existence of fo rm and formlessness in each piece.”
