Los Angeles artist Lianne Jedeikin’s artistic journey spans continents. Originally from Zimbabwe, she pursued her studies in Cape Town, South Africa, before immigrating to the United States. In 1989, Lianne founded Accentrix Design Studio, a creative hub that flourished under her guidance. Managing a team of talented artists, she dedicated herself to crafting awe-inspiring, large-scale design installations for clients nationwide.
Lianne is currently working on “Goddesses and Gargoyles,” a series of multi-media paintings that comment on the intricate balance and fluidity between the fierce protectiveness symbolized by the gargoyle and the sensual beauty represented by the inner goddess.
“I am particularly focused on exploring the duality of the Goddess and Gargoyle within myself. Through this series, which utilizes large-scale oil and charcoal compositions, I pay homage to the strength and vitality embodied by femininity. Each brushstroke and charcoal mark serve as a testament to the profound and ever-evolving relationship I have with these contrasting aspects of my identity.”
"In their memory," is an almost sold-out series that incorporates oil paint, soft pastel, and charcoal applied to authentic vintage wallpapers. The juxtaposition of floral backgrounds with figures of domestic workers and their children symbolizes and echoes the lingering effects of colonial paternalism and shines a light on the complexities of history and power dynamics.
Lianne's artwork has been showcased in various group exhibitions across California. Notable venues include the Las Laguna Gallery in Laguna Beach, the ZArt Academy Show in Brentwood, the O'Hanlon Center for the Arts in Mill Valley, the RealArt Gallery in Agoura Hills, and The Other Art Show at Barker Hanger in Santa Monica. Lianne’s art has gained international recognition and has been acquired by collectors in South Africa, Australia, Canada, France, and the United States.
