Celebrate Being Human

Renée's work is inspired by music and sound frequency.

Her sensitivity to sound led her to research and understand her form of synaesthesia and the function of the brain.

 

For her, creating becomes even more complex when trying at bringing together different threads of her life: her path in shamanism and drumming, her questions about identity, divinity and purpose.

 

She said, "When thinking of Sound and Frequency, it is never-ending cycle of creation and connection of life, of emotions and of a Oneness that we cannot separate ourselves from never how hard we try.

 

“For me, music and sound are both the language and underlying architecture of the cosmos.” by Tom Kenyon

 

About Wireless Frequency: Being Human in a Digital Era. 

Wireless frequency is unseen, constantly buzzing which is equally powerful, it can affect the brainwaves causing ill health."

 

Wireless frequency from electronic devices caused a major shift in her health in 2015.

She remembers being crippled with headaches, and her senses on overload.  The constant buzz of electronic devices, unhealthy sound waves seeping into her senses.  It caused an imbalance.  Her natural rhythm became a zig zag, loosing focus, nervous energy and the need to isolate herself.  This brought about a change and her relationship with electronic devices. 

 

This prompted Renee to create her first sculptural piece “nerve endings” with 17000 pins expressing how her nerve felt when being surrounded by constant wireless frequency. 

A Bit About Renee's Creative Process

Paintings

Renee's paintings are created with specific pieces of music.  It's difficult to duplicate them as each piece is a creative journey in itself. The frequency of notes tells the story of the music and colours.

Most of her paintings despite the notes and tones tend to end up in all shape and sizes of spiral swirls and frequency waves or spikes.:) 

Sculptures

Creating these pieces is a revelation of her patience :) Each piece takes between 3-4 months. It’s methodically and very meditative.  

It allows her to experience a different creative process, with materials to touch and handle each piece individually.  

Spending so much time with one piece also generates more creative ideas with various medium/materials.  The creative adventure continues……

 

Sensory Installation

Renee's says, The process of creating sensory installation is like going on a sensory excursion in her head.  

It takes a year or more to create, each piece done separately and then assembled within the space to physically manifest.

She hope that visitors can connect with their sense whilst in the installation space.
