Artist Statement: “My creative soul was inspired by a desire to evoke my emotions at the deepest level with vibrantly colored swirls that exude off the canvas and into the heart of the viewer.”
ReneaMenzies’ rise in the art world is as unique as her canvases of vibrantly colored 3-D flowers. In the beginningRenea started experimenting with different mediums – acrylic and mixed media formats. She now works exclusively with oil and has developed an original and popular floral style that has landed her work in prestigious galleries across the country.
In creating her art, Renea uses pallet knives to blend a variety of rich, jewel-toned colors. She then swirls the paint onto the canvas to create a beautiful blend of colors that transform into leaves. On a side canvas, she shapes and contours paint into a multitude of sculptured oil flowers and delicately transfers them onto the leaves that she has already created. Once the paint is partially dry, she applies a glaze. Her sculpted oil technique has a thick buttery appearance and creates a mesmerizing 3-D effect.
