Corban Renouf, Bianca, 2014, acrylic and airbrush on canvas, 115 x 115cm

Inspired by personal and political liberty, Corban Renouf uses suggestive imagery to demonstrate chaos.

Utilising the same language large marketing companies use to sell Renouf silently demonstrates the chaos that abounds within the media. Through this work, the artist hopes to convey the message that woman should not be valued by beauty alone, despite the constant appeal and barrage of glamorous images, portrayed by the media.

Renouf’s current body of work are all executed in freehand style, giving the images a sense of rawness. Enhanced by paint and finished off with air-brushing, enabling a sense of openness and looseness to pervade the images.
