I am interested in the idea that despite the increasing ways we have created to network with one another, we can still feel that we stand apart. Through varying subject matter—factories, weeds, birds on a telephone wire—my paintings explore the strength and beauty of the state of aloneness. My hope is that the viewer will feel connected to the sense of disconnect through my vignettes of powerful quiet.
About the Artist
Angie Renfro’s parents recognized their daughter’s interest in art when she was a child and enrolled her in a small painting class that met once a week in the teacher’s garage. This early introduction fueled Renfro’s desire to pursue her artistic ambitions. A native of Texas, she moved to San Francisco, California, to attend art school. In 2002 she received a bachelor of fine arts degree in illustration from the Academy of Art College. Thereafter she remained in the city to pursue a variety of artistic avenues. The experience Renfro gained from working in various fields of design has had a tremendous influence on her work.
Constantly evolving and exploring new ways to communicate with her viewers, Renfro never loses focus on her attempts to capture beauty in the often-overlooked.
Renfro has been a featured artist in both Southwest Art Magazine (October 2010) and American Art Collector (August 2008), and her paintings are carried in galleries across the United States.
Angie Renfro currently lives in Chicago, Illinois.
