Micky Renders is a practicing artist and teacher who holds a degree in biology. She currently teaches visual arts and digital photography at Thomas A. Stewart Secondary School in Peterborough. Renders’ new body of work, Finding Joy, extends the artist’s exploration of colour. In this suite of twenty-four colour field oil paintings, the artist has applied many layers of transparent paint mixed with glaze to create tonal paintings that activate a set of visual vibrations. Renders writes, “Colour has the power to evoke psychological, physiological, and symbolic effects: colour as light, colour as emotion, colour as temperature, atmosphere and space. Colour embodies the fullness of existence.”
