Angie Renfro's paintings are compelling explorations of the beauty of standing apart. Through varying subject matter -- factories, weeds, birds on a telephone wire -- she delves into the idea that we all share the experience of feeling disconnected. Her austere compositions are painted with loose, bold strokes using a simple, sophisticated color palette. Wistful and filled with a sense of longing, each work is a vignette of powerful quiet.
"In my paintings, I attempt to capture the beauty in the often overlooked. My inspiration is derived primarily from long road trips across Texas. From rusting silos to empty fields, the aesthetic of Texas' stark landscape is translated into my work. Whether the subject is bird on a telephone wire or an abandoned storage unit, there is a quality in my paintings that is at once lonely and captivating. My intention is that by drawing attention to such objects, the viewer too, will appreciate their quiet unassuming beauty."
