Artist Statement

Doreen Renner – SCA, OSA, CSPWC, CFS, TWS, FSWS

My paintings are a reflection of a creative, boundless imagination and are inspired by a memory, a life experience and everyday events.  Some complex, deep and mysterious while others are light, amusing and whimsical.  I paint intuitively, allowing the image to dictate the direction it chooses to evolve, through multiple layers of acrylic water media infused with richness in value contrast, embellished with gestural calligraphy, designed to engage the viewer and encourage closer observation and personal interpretation.

“Art should be something that liberates your soul, provokes the imagination and encourages people to go further”. Keith Haring
