Summit County Public Art

The flowers overflowing the vase in "Sunflowers," with their long, pointed petals, resemble the bright yellow Mules Ears that color the landscape of Summit County every June. And they might well be. "Most of the paintings are [of landscapes] right around here," artist Renee Mox Hall says. "I get my inspiration by passing by these scenes day after day." The piece is painted in a loose, saturated style. Subject and background blend together with the vase of water blurring into the fluid background, and sunflower yellow soaking into the warm yellow light of the sky. Hall's more-vibrant-than-life "Sunflowers" embellish the already vibrant pallet of nature, and create in the viewer the giddy feeling of summer. Mox is an avid gardener, and sunflowers are among her favorite subjects to paint.

ReNee Mox Hall grew up near Kansas City. She studied art in New York before returning to Kansas to complete her university studies at Washburn University. Her emphasis shifted from applied art to the human understanding of art, resulting in a degree in psychology and sociology. Renee moved to Park City, Utah in 1990. She enjoys mountain sports and is active in community affairs, music, and the arts. Renee's work is found in private collections in North and South America, Europe, Asia, and Australia and in various corporate collections including Marriott International Corporation. She is a member of the Park City Professional Artist Association and Utah Watercolor Society.
