Gregg Renfrow – Apprehension of Beauty
October 7, 2021 - October 30, 2021Free
Elizabeth Leach Gallery is pleased to present Apprehension of Beauty, artist Gregg Renfrow’s latest artworks infused with color and light. Renfrow creates semi-transparent acrylic panels that feature layers of color that emerge from the center and emanate towards the edges of each composition. The luminescent shades, made from poured polymer and pigment, appear suspended in space.
In these new works, combinations of warm and cool striations form color fields that radiate ambient light and appear to glow from within. Each artwork is responsive to its environment’s surrounding light and possesses an aura of spirituality more commonly associated with natural phenomena like the ocean, sky, or a sunset. The artist’s exhibition title hints at a kind of ambivalence regarding the trappings of traditional beauty in favor of an intangible, enigmatic experience.
