About Renee Mendler
There are no upcoming events
I am a self-taught Contemporary Abstract Artist from Rochester, NY. I have degrees in special education and mathematics. Prior to having children, I taught high school math for close to ten years.
Mathematics and art are more related than one would think, there is a dance between the two disciplines, visual imagery of the ebb and flow of equations can construct beautiful abstract compositions. Currently, I balance being a stay at home mom for two beautiful children and painting every chance I get.
I find beauty and joy in the freedom of my abstract painting process, dabbling in the unknown and limiting control. Color and movement take over my surface and create luminous, enchanting works. Each painting is completely original, made from my own unique painting process. Never do I have a plan or idea when I begin, I let the paint take over and upon completion I feel as though the reason was there all along.
Based on acrylics, mixed media, and resin, my work is the result of a long and ongoing experiment with different techniques and learning through mistakes. While confident where I am at the moment, as a subject to change like everything else, my work will undoubtedly keep evolving.
