Renee first exhibited at Woman Made Gallery for the “While In Class…” exhibition, a show solely dedicated to student artists. Renee’s gold-plated potato chips entitled, We Eat Laughing, Helpless and Forgetful immediately captured interest of staff, volunteers, interns and visitors. Her work, composed of seemingly mundane materials from her everyday life (things like floss, teabags, hair, etc.), both conceptualize and emphasize day-to-day tasks that would otherwise dissipate within the repetition and banality of an overlooked reality.
She writes, “My content-driven, process-oriented work is grounded in gender identity, work, and the everyday. My primary questions are, “what is work?” and “how is it measured and valued?” There are many daily activities that result in nothing tangible—yet they occupy much of our time.”
*Renee was one of three students awarded an honorary Gallery Membership for her outstanding work in the “While in Class…” show.
