Constance Renken is a German artist based in Hamburg. Her passion for art developed at an early age and continued throughout and past her studies. She lived and worked in New York City for five years where her artwork has been shown in exhibitions in Chelsea, in SoHo and on Long Island.

 

Since she is fascinated by the American Abstract Expressionism, spontaneity also finds its way into her art creation process. Especially the color composition of her paintings should reach the viewer on an emotional level. Her choice of colors is inspired by moods from encounters with people but also by events that fascinate and touch her emotionally. The more extreme the color range the more intense are the emotions that revolve around that memory.

 

“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.”

 

Starting off with more figurative paintings in her early years, Constance's art has evolved into a stage of abstract motives over the past fifteen years. Her artwork often has an association with nature due to the recurring horizon line in her paintings. That somehow gives the viewer a point of orientation in the abstract interplay of colors and also the possibility that an imaginary expanse can arise which evokes the seductive feeling of wanderlust and freedom in a certain way. For her artwork, Constance exclusively utilizes acrylic paints applied on canvas by spatula in order to give each painting a different surface structure and more depth due to many layers of paint.

 

Her artwork is regularly shown in national and international solo and group exhibitions as well as at art fairs and festivals. In the last five years, her paintings have been exhibited as a part of the Artbox.Projects in Miami, Barcelona, ​​Venice and Zurich. In 2021 she was selected as one of the semi-finalists at the Swiss Art Expo with her work "Afterglow" in Zurich.

 

In addition, Constance Renken supports the worldwide water projects of Viva con Agua with her art, for example as a part of the Millerntor Gallery, where her paintings are successfully auctioned off by the auction house CHRISTIE'S.
