In 1974 the Vogels met Edda Renouf through fellow artist Richard Tuttle. “Essential to my paintings and drawings is the revealing of an abstract structure and energy inherent to my materials, the linen canvas and cotton paper,” the artist notes. Incising lines with an etching point to remove particles of paper or removing and adding threads into the weave of the canvas, Renouf mediates the surface of her works, highlighting her interests in the natural world.
