Abstract artist Renea Menzies has an expanding portfolio of distinguished galleries, with a Solo Show at Bismarck Studios in San Antonio this month. Her unique sculpted technique is gaining popularity and nationwide attention.
Renea’s effect of raised and fluted oils offers an inspiring montage of shapes that bound off the canvas. Her sculpted oils display the intricate marriage of technique and color that brings her work to life and inspires movement of the imagination in a textured oasis.
"My creative soul was inspired by a desire to evoke emotion at the deepest level with vibrantly colored swirls that exude off the canvas into the heart of the viewer." - Renea Menzies
Renea’s Abstract art has bold influences that are inspired by many facets of her individualism. While she is a native Texan, she has traveled the globe to some of the most exotic locations in the world. Her sense of style is heavily influenced by the many cultures she has enjoyed in her travels. Renea achieved early success in her career while studying under artist JD Miller of Dallas, Texas.
Christine Brothers, owner, describes Renea's art as "Petals most certainly have all the seductiveness of blossoms but have the permanence to grace your art collection. Her oil paintings are figurative and abstract at once." Renea is a big supporter of local and national charities. Menzie's currently has a couple of upcoming event showcasing Menzies art in which all proceeds benefit Collaborative for Children and Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
Art enthusiasts have commented, "Menzie's use of oils creates a thick buttery appearance similar to ribbon candy." Renea uses a pallet knife to blend a variety of colors as she fashions the paint strategically on the canvas to create the stunning visual energy.
Three critical considerations for investing in Abstract Artwork:
APPRECIATION - The historical upward price trend of the artist's work in previous years is critical. Like any investment you want to buy as the valuation is escalating to receive maximum financial gains.
SATURATION - Market saturation is important as supply definitely affects price. A uniquely rare original piece of art available in limited quantity will be more valuable than art manufactured for mass consumption.
PROMOTION - With any up-and-coming or established artist the extent galleries and critiques are creating a 'buzz' in the marketplace will obviously translate into a market that is more inclined to pay a premium for your chosen artist when you are ready sell.
