Gwendolyn Kassenaar

Gwendolyn Kassenaar

Gwendolyn Kassenaar is a Dutch Visual Artist & performer based in London. A graduate from Chelsea College of Art, she collaborates with dancers and musicians in her live-art performances and studio-based work. She improvises in the moment to express the intangible poetry of that ephemeral moment. She embraces experimentation in her quest to fuse visual art, rhythm, colour, sound and movement.

Gwendolyn’s art is known for her bold, gestural strokes and vibrant use of colour. Recently it has been shown at Toulouse Lautrec Jazz Club, Vortex Jazz club and in a solo exhibit in Shoreditch. It features on album covers and in private and corporate collections in the UK and abroad. An active participant in the London jazz scene, she is resident artist and curator at Freedom (Vortex), avant-garde Skronk and Melifera (HYG).

Recent performances include a large live-painted mural in Shoreditch with dancer Petra Haller, commissioned by OTZ Gallery; a multi-disciplinary performance at the Hundred Years Gallery including a poetry recital; and a duet with internationally renowned Chinese percussionist Beibei Wang at SOAS. She co-founded the new Noisy Women series with Faradena Afifi and Maggie Nicols. Their recent launch received critical acclaim in The Wire magazine.
