We were privileged to visit contemporary fine artist Jeannie Kinsler at her home in Durban and are so delighted to share this short film - a peek into her home life and creative inspirations.
Jeannie draws from and is informed by the space she lives in and things that surround her - a created, curated environment. Her work as a result can be seen as a tribute to home, to the people that she shares the space with, to the objects and plants.
She is concerned with the idea of life as being an essentially transient, ephemeral thing – the lift of a breeze and something is there and gone. The face or body poised to move. Her paintings are an attempt to make something permanent of those fleeting moments.
