“Sometimes It Feels Like This”
Rena Southern is a singer-songwriter, artist, and mother. “Sometimes It Feels Like This” is her first exhibition at 17 Frost Gallery.
Her work in this exhibit is a combination of geometry, figuration, symbolism and language. While abstract, the aim is to describe and embody definitive ideas, emotions and/or stories. Love, in all its beauty and devastation, is this workʼs recurring theme. The process for these paintings were intuitive and emotional but also carefully considered, resulting in a marriage between action and surrender. As love necessitates surrender and growth necessitates action, growing in love requires both. “Sometimes It Feels Like This” is a play within that exchange.
Five years ago Rena moved from Brooklyn, NY to the island of St. Lucia and it has been an art fest ever since.
