Most times my pictures relate to the anonymous distortion of the human image, women in particular. The face, the hands, the dress, the motion are important. These pictures are not as you the viewer want them to be and they are not painted or drawn as they should be. They are characters from life as I see them.
Grenon’s technique, reverse painting on glass, allows for the strength of his pictures. He delivers areas of brilliant high-toned color set off by strong dark lines. Grenon’s use of color directly mirrors his psychological effect: an immediate and forceful impact followed by the appearance of subtle and seemingly endless complexity. He develops his color by pushing his brush through wet paint to the surface of the glass. This is what Grenon does with people: he pushes their usually unseen colors right to the front.
