L. Renee Nunez Installation Art and Painting
Habitat: A Personal Bestiary
Relinquishing frame altogether I mass these intricately painted and hand cut canvas layers on vertical and horizontal surfaces. I call this genre “accreting or aggregating painting” because at it’s basic level it consists of multiple paintings overlapping and relating directly to each other. I layer, hang and curve the paintings away from and back into the supporting surface. My work has been described as “…painting disguised as object” because the paintings are hand cut and consist of intricate networks which cast shadow and reflect color from the supporting surface causing them to straddle the realms of two and three dimensional works.
