1990s Art of Renee Radell


Artist Bio highlights. The 1990s art of Renee Radell developed from expressionist social commentary painting to her version of a visual modern morality play using symbolism, surrealism and myth to convey allegories about human enigmas, tragedies and glory. During this time, she created  her most extensive painting series, the Puppet House. This playful excursion into the artist’s imagination depicts inanimate studio props coming to life while “reason” is held hostage amidst a world “more full of weeping than you can understand” (from Y.B. Yeats).


Radell expanded to capacious creations on canvas in her 1990s art despite the limitations of a confined New York City studio. She was nevertheless able to produce monumental works such as the Night Parade in Flanders triptych, a culmination of European studies and landscape impressions, social commentary, and humorous reference to life’s carnival.
