Denise Prenell-Weidner

I select color as if it does not need to represent any element in nature. Instead, I use color based on its ability to hold its own in a composition. Having become tired of the usual tones of autumn leaves, I include turquoise, scarlet red, and intense cadmium making color zones across the canvas with smoothed-out minimal brushstrokes. I feel obligated as an artist to manipulate nature with my paintbrush.
