Renee Gertler

Renée Gertler’s work imaginatively explores the relationship between sculpture and photography. Inspired by NASA photography, Renée creates objects from simple materials that are subsequently photographed, recreating the source images based on this new content. The work investigates the slippage between the photographs and the objects as the line blurs between the two mediums. Renée’s work has been presented at Eleanor Harwood Gallery, Patricia Sweetow Gallery, Ping Pong Gallery and Southern Exposure. She attended Harvard and received her MFA from California College of the Arts and had residencies at MacDowell and Kohler Arts and Industry. She was also the recipient of a Danish Arts Council Grant.
