Following the immigration of her grandparents from Gujarat, India in the 1950s, Jessie Kanji grew up in Wellington, Aotearoa. Inspired by mother nature, studies in physiology and indigenous cultures she creates abstract forms. Catalysed by her journey on the road from Cape Reinga to Bluff, her art searches for the balance between order and chaos. Studying the interconnectedness of life through exploring the interplay of physiological processes, Jessie plays with the elements of connection, movement, space and colour. Her artwork expresses the dance of life processes through mother nature as reflected in the human form. Jessie advocates for the healing power of art in all its forms and the meaning it can bring to all shades of humanity.
