Constance Renken is an artist, based in Hamburg, Germany. Her passion for art arose when she was a teenager and continued throughout and past her studies. For her large-sized artworks, she exclusively utilizes acrylic paints applied on canvas by spatula. Starting off with more figurative paintings in her early years, Constance's art has evolved into a stage of abstract motives over the past ten years. Her paintings are dominated by expressive colors that capture emotions of interpersonal moments. The more extreme the color range the more intense and genuine the feeling of the encounter. 

 

“Every now and then in life you meet people besides your loved ones who touch and fascinate you in a very distinctive way. For me, these special encounters are tied to very intense and long lasting thoughts that I feel the need to process by creating art. When I’m connecting with my art it feels like freedom … beyond daily routine and social conventions … very special and fulfilling. Every piece of art is a part of me and my own story.”

 

Constance Renken lived and worked in New York City for five years. Her artworks have been shown in many exhibitions in Chelsea, SoHo and Long Island. Since she is fascinated by the American Abstract Expressionism, emotions and spontaneity also find their way into her creation process of art.
