About Gregg Renfrow

In his luminous, abstract compositions, Gregg Renfrow conveys the ever-changing quality of the Californian light he has been minutely observing over the course of his 40-plus year career. Working in layers, he pours mixtures of polymer and pigment over rectangular or square sheets of cast acrylic, creating brushless paintings full of depth and subtle tonal gradations. Renfrow is influenced by Minimalism and the Light & Space movement, and, fundamentally, by the light with which he begins every day. “The foundation of my painting practice is the daily exercise of drawing,” he says. “The purpose of drawing is comprehension. In my case, it is the comprehension of the constant flux of the visible world around me as it is revealed by the light.”

American , b. 1948
