Sensing Wonder exhibition

Taking her inspiration from the natural world, Wendy Undazan’s larger than life paintings allow a chance to reflect on the intricacy and beauty of nature.

24 March-1 May 2017

From the age of two Wendy has shown a creative flair for painting. Thirty years ago whilst working for a Japanese art company based in the UK, she discovered silk painting and now produces much of her work in this medium.

" Working with silk allows for a fluidity and purity of colour, the luxurious purity of the material gives each work a joyful luminosity, which will be dazzling in the sunlight streaming in to Leith Hill Place"
- Wendy Undazan, Artist

Each piece, many of which measure 4ft x 3ft, takes around 2-3 weeks to complete. The works on show at Leith Hill Place have been chosen for their spring-like feel, reflecting the spring flowers in bloom in the grounds, including the Rhododendron Woods.

Extensive travel through the USA, Far East, Europe and Iceland, plus two years living in South Africa have awoken Wendy to the importance of open spaces. Her work breaks down their complexity and creates a celebration of colour and scale.

The exhibition will be open Friday to Sunday and Bank Holidays 24 March-1 May 2017 at Leith Hill Place. Admission charges apply to Leith Hill Place, but entrance to the exhibition is free. National Trust members receive free entry.
