DESCRIPTION

Gordon Wiens’ Form and Formlessness provides an alternative to the intense experience of modern day living through its subdued colour palette, textural elements and ordered forms. “I offer my current paintings as objects for self-immersion - quiet spaces for contemplation and the opportunity to find balance and perspective.”
The viewer recognizes the geometric strips layered upon one another, iconic of Wiens’ style, however in this latest series, flecks of bright pink and fresh greens emerge through the many bands of whites and greys. The process is both intricate and highly 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 essence of this that is evident in my work, visible in the co-existence of form and formlessness in each piece.”
