New York City.- The Kim Foster Gallery is pleased to present “The Darker the Shadow, the Brighter the Light”, on view at the gallery through March 10th. “The Darker the Shadow, The Brighter the Light” consists of recent figurative paintings by Louis Renzoni. Using a color palette of dark blue, soft yellow, pink and white , Renzoni creates a noir atmosphere of women caught in a moment of transition. Ordinary routines appear slightly sinister. Small areas of light don’t illuminate but seem on the verge of being completely overwhelmed by darkness. Major characters, rather than being accented by shadows, are in and hidden by them. The paintings convey a specific mood, usually a kind of disturbing quiet. He calls it a flicker between the romantic and the ordinary.
