RENA SAVA

Biography

Born in Boston, Massachusetts, graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design, in Providence, Rhode Island with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, and studied in Rome, Italy as part of a European Honours Program.

Statement

My painting and printmaking is a visual expression of nature: line, light, colour and form, as I see them in my subjects.
I employ energetic, expressive mark-making in various media (sometimes layering techniques and materials) as well as stylization, abstraction and distortion, in order to reinvent the landscape and human form.
The intensity of the physical and psychological involvement in the process of painting is most important to me.
My concern is to find a personal sense of harmony between subject and execution that engages the imagination of the viewer.
