Notes

"In Their Memory is a series featuring large full-length portraits created with oil paint on vintage wallpaper inspired by photographs taken by her husband’s brother as a child living in South Africa in the late 1960s. The colonial floral backgrounds seep into the flesh and clothing of the domestic workers and children depicted in the paintings echoing the invasive colonial paternalism that deliberately and insidiously destroyed civilizations and threw millions of human beings into cruel servitude. In Their Memory is a commentary on injustice and hope for a future that acknowledges the tragic mistakes of the past." –Lianne Jedeikin

Lianne Jedeikin was born in Zimbabwe in the sixties. Her mother, a working artist, was the primary inspiration for her creativity, along with the rich cultural heritage she was exposed to growing up in Africa. Jedeikin began making a living through artistic endeavours when she moved to Los Angeles in 1989 and founded Accentrix Design Studio. Lianne turned to paint as a way of dealing with the strong emotions that surfaced as a result of the election of Donald Trump. “I was struggling to understand my role as an artist deconstructing and reassembling the confusion of my upbringing in Africa and living in the United States during a time of upheaval and uncertainty.” Lianne is studying at the ZArt Academy where she is tutored and mentored by Zhenya Gershman, a Russian-born master painter, art historian, and educator. Lianne’s work has been featured in group shows across California at Las Laguna Gallery in Laguna Beach, the ZArt Academy Show in Brentwood, the O'Hanlon Center for the Arts, Mill Valley, and the RealArt Gallery in Agoura Hills.
