Jesse Reno's Bio
MEDIUM: Acrylic, Oil Pastel & Pencil
Jesse Reno is a self-taught, Portland-based, mixed media painter, who has been drawing since age 5 and exhibiting extensively since 2001 in the USA, Canada and Europe.
Jesse's works are best described as "A Primitive Abstract Narrative". A process without preconceived plans just a thought and feeling following one after the other to become an idea... changing directions as forms emerge to find an idea free from judgment, something true in and of itself. From this a world of personal myth, iconography, symbols and beings is created.
Reno presents us with a journey leading inward to ultimately expand outward: "If you have moved wisely your dreams will still grow when you are gone. My work acts for no reason other than to convey an inner struggle for expression - simple and direct. Open for interpretation. Always with purpose. Words mis-spelled, left out - just like real thinking, the disconnected string of thoughts that guides the day. This is my expression."Visit Jesse Reno's Website »
