VANESSA GOODSON-HOUNSELL: CONTEMPORARY ARTIST
ABOUT VANESSA GOODSON-HOUNSELL
The intuitive work of contemporary artist Vanessa Goodson-Hounsell will inspire you.
Vanessa is one of Zimbabwe’s leading contemporary artists, and is included in the Zeitz Mocaa’s list of influential artists in Zimbabwe.
She began exhibiting in the UK in 2000, and has continued to exhibit and sell work ever since. Her work has quadrupled in value since she began exhibiting.
Vanessa’s talent was first recognised as a young child, when she had her work selected by Frank Joubert art school, Cape Town, for inclusion in the Venice Biennale, where her work was exhibited.
Her narrative lies in the spiritual, esoteric and tempestuous contemporary history of South Africa, Zimbabwe and Mozambique. It is largely an exploration of how the body and spirit (both human and animal) integrate with the landscape over time.
Esotericism subscribes to the theory that a correspondence or connection exists between all parts of the invisible and visible cosmos, and that nature is a living entity owing to a divine life force.
Vanessa finds the Divine in nature; the spirit of those past, present and future in land and sea – the voices of the waves, the fury of the wind, the songs of the mountains, the scents of the gardens, the spirits in the trees…..
