By Louis Renzoni, 2015. 18" x 24". Oil on paper.
Using classical media—oil, ground pigments and lead whites—Louis Renzoni creates an intriguingly noir atmosphere. Renzoni paints in layers, sanding and re-painting until background details disappear, leaving figures that seem to be emerging from places in our own memory. Cloaked in an air of darkness, Renzoni’s enigmatic and romantic oeuvre illuminates our universal cellular memory.
Louis Renzoni’s paintings are in the collections of The Museum of Sex, NY, The SOR Rusche Collection, and The Lannan Foundation.
Louis lives and works in New York City.
