Duval, Renée

My art practice reflects my continual interest in representation and its capacity to evoke certain kinds of visual experience. In my paintings I use images to articulate a visual experience of the world as a kind of visual sensation.

For me, certain types of visual experience evoke an almost tactile response and underscore “looking” as a physical experience. My paintings are concerned with what it feels like to look out at the world.
