Wendy Saunders is an Australian born artist living in London. Her paintings are predominantly series of female heads in close up, often without features but with the explicit intention of provoking a deeper intuitive response that goes beyond simple interpretation. Her work reflects her broad interest in how one intuitively ‘reads’ faces from fleeting impressions and the subtle combination of features. Her newer works are moving towards abstraction, simplifying figures to reveal their underlying structures
She has exhibited in group shows, been selected for exhibitions including Threadneedle Prize, OpenWest, Ing Discerning Eye, Royal Academy Summer Exhibition. She has organised and co-curated a number of exhibitions including Disturbance and Slippery & Amorphous.
