Everyday situations stir Reenie Charrière’s investigations of what lingers in the environment. Her practice involves collecting and transforming everyday materials, especially throwaways. As a mixed media artist Reenie playfully pushes materials in unexpected arrangements bringing a surprising beauty to what may be discarded. Her artwork also reveals and questions the abundance of waste in our consumer dependent society. Motivated by architecture, movement, and space, Reenie’s sculptural installations play upon the unpredictable juxtapositions of natural and synthetic matter.
