Renée Levin, best known for her modern depiction of coastal objects, paints primarily in large scale allowing her to celebrate the beauty of simple objects. Her recognizable style of juxtapositions combined with a monochromatic palette allows Levin to showcase her minimal and modern aesthetic. These juxtapositions include the use of extreme contrasts - pairing dark with light, dramatic shadows with bright glimmers of light, grit with soft blends and realism with graphic elements. She carefully considers her compositions resulting in dynamic use of negative space as well as movement, almost playful at times. Levin’s coastal roots and deep connection to nature ground her creativity and allow her to celebrate these natural objects – their beauty, fluidity and unpredictability – in her work.
