Renate West 

Artist Statement

Renate’s paintings, although starting with a preconceived idea/inspiration, always leave room for spontaneity. Her aim is to achieve freedom from confining principles and establish an equal partnership between expression, emotion and working with the medium, allowing the moment to dictate the development of the painting. Her work is filled with fascinating, evocative images, allowing the viewer to form a personal response to the painting. “Painting is a constant confrontation with myself if I dare to venture out of my comfort zone ………and I dare, continuously”. (Renate West)
