Collection: Natalie Wesselius

As a Hamilton-based artist, Natalie Wesselius feels it is important to understand class distinctions in our urban spaces. Growing up with an immigrant mother and a school teacher father, Natalie has learned the significance in teaching, helping, and understanding each other rather than to be combative with bias. Art is a great tool for this, as it connects us through stimulating visual empathy. Having difficulty speaking at a young age, drawing was Natalie's preferred way of communicating and the start of her therapeutic relationship to art. Having experienced mental illness herself and with those close to her, Natalie finds it easier to put it into visuals than in words. Primarily an oil painter, as well as practicing ballet, photography, film, music and collage, she comes to appreciate different forms of expression as its own language. 

Using large scale paper, clashing tones, and vigorous brushstrokes, Natalie Wesselius expresses an impulsive uneasiness. When working with found or taken images through photography, she reflects the social structures around us and how they define us; a critique and at times a celebration. Obsessing over our relationship to objects in a commodified dissociated world, Natalie creates anxiety-induced domestic environments that signify both the presence and absence of the figure. Bridging the gap between the imaginative and ‘real’, she questions her reality and streams the everyday psyche. Natalie strives to create imaginative spaces in hopes to encourage discussion of our surrounding psychological elements that affect us and the ability to not look away when we should be looking.
