Renate Polzer – erpe

“Ideas and visions constitute the basis for my abstract two and three-dimensional artworks. Building my abstracted oil panels, I create intricate textures by building with many layers of color beneath the final surface. Optical and haptic impressions are connected with transformations of previous paintings.”
