Artist as Translator

Here we explore the artist as translator, or perhaps another way to put it is, artist as interpreter. Aldo says that “central to all of his paintings is the balance between memory and hope, sorrow and humor, freedom and control”. In her statement, Reneé also discusses freedom and control, “My point of departure, is usually somewhere in a state of chaos - where I leave the environment or a situation in charge of the direction to which the marks are made. It is then up to me to find or create a sense of order…” Both artists reach a different pictorial conclusion while exploring similar issues.
