Renee Cloud and I met up early March at Goodyear Arts in Charlotte, NC to talk about her work and the relationships that art can cultivate. I'm always so impressed by Renee's creative energy and her unending promotion of others artistic processes and work. Renee's own work acts as a mirror, offering space for reflection and introspection into our own uses of language. At times uncomfortable and mysterious, always thought provoking and honest. Her exuberant use of color and sparkle sound an alarm, daring us to pay attention and make a connection.
Renee Cloud is a Charlotte native and received her BFA in Studio Art from Appalachian State University in 2015. Using a combination of text art and mixed media, she creates work that focuses on the personal narrative, the black experience, and the power of the written word. The text she incorporates into her pieces provides only a fraction of the narrative, leaving the viewer to create the rest. Cloud resides in Charlotte, North Carolina and is currently serving as the Gallery Coordinator for Central Piedmont Community College.
