REVIEW OF LEANNE VENIER’s ARTWORK:

The paintings of Leanne Venier stimulate the body and soul through vivacious fields of colorful abstraction, utilizing the spectrum of light frequencies to create calm, clear minds and to physically heal the body. Leanne’s visual therapy utilizes color energy as a method to inspire positive emotions, in much the same way that music affects emotion through sound frequencies. Her ongoing studies in color therapy, Jungian psychology, dream analysis, and Eastern philosophies, as well as her background as a healing practitioner utilizing acupuncture and shiatsu, have allowed her to develp a deeper understanding of the role of creative energy in healthy living. Leanne’s focus on channeling healing energy through color therapy have become an intutive means of promoting emotional and physical wellbeing, as a form of compassionate interaction through artistic expression.

– Matt Anzak, International Curator
