"Resonance(s)" april - june 2014 

Born in 1973 in the Netherlands. Lives and works in Amsterdam.

History is at the core of Natasja Kensmil’s body of work. Her unsettling paintings and drawings unfold layers of colors and meanings. “My imagery of fear and of anxiousness is derived from history, religion and mythology but also from the extremism of our time,” explains the artist. “Hope, fear, pain, and the craving for power, violence, creation, and destruction are inextricably entwined, which fascinates me.”
