Cadeau Deux (Gift Two)
July - August 2018
Born and raised in Sydney’s inner-west, she lives with her family in Sydney’s south bringing a local perspective and a vibrant personality.
As an artist her practice is primarily lens based. She is currently undertaking a Masters of Art at Sydneys UNSW Art & Design, with a curent focus on long exposure abstraction.
Renaud shares with us her own life encounters, in an attempt to engage the viewer with her guileless exploration of the everyday. By revealing intimate experiences from her childhood to the present, it is quickly evident that her own personal narrative is often an all-encompassing, universally shared and very human one. Her work brings together a broad range of social, political and environmental references in attempt to subvert the mainstream expectations of women and especially Mothers, in this 21st Century, which she feels, greatly impacts on humanity and the globe.
