Art proclaiming the shapes of relationships
Hendrik Ensing | Artist
My art is a study of the shapes of relationships.
I call my artwork – RelationShapes … the shapes of relationships.
I am a social purpose artist.
My art explores the many shapes that relationships take. I deconstruct the relationship. Each artwork is a snapshot of that shape – that singular moment that can lead to an enduring relationship. That shape is in the moment of free choice.
I am a full-time artist. I live in the country next to a river in New Zealand, with Jenny. Ours is an enduring marriage relationship of over 32 years, and it gets more lasting every day.
Time in marriage has given me a vision of what’s most precious to the human family. And I paint that vision. Our relationships are our greatest investment – the treasured prize we take with us – and no greater inheriance do we leave behind us.
Connect with me in my Art-In-Progress group on Patreon as I work, sketch and paint in my art studio. Give me your feedback as I read ‘Henk’s Art Thoughts’ which are notes from my art notebook, and we chat about the meaning in my current painting-in-progress.
Patrons are included in my Fine Art Ballot held every month. Each winner gets to choose a recent painting as a supporter reward. Think of this as a fair way for me to reward you for supporting me to keep creating more of my relationshapes art.
