I create sculptural color field paintings that droop, ripple, crack and pool off the surface.
South Florida based process artist, Renee Phillips, is most inspired by Earths ever-changing surface. She explores the manipulation of paint, and layering of color, to achieve sculptural like results that droop, ripple, crack and pool on the canvas. Further engaging the elements of heat, wind, water and gravity, she pushes paint to its limit, allowing each color to display its individual ‘signature effect’, which is studied, layered and re-worked. What results is a metamorphosis of paint; the creation of sensuous compositions filled with mountainous ranges and geographical forms often harnessed by calm pools of softly rippled valleys reminiscent of aerial perspectives of Earth.
