Merry Renert: Artist Statement

I have always been fascinated with art in all its various forms—from painting, sculpture, collage, and photography to music and dance. My work arises out of nature and the movement found within it.

The wind, the tides, the animals, and the human elements are never static but always in flux. Using texture, collage acrylic mediums, or naturally found elements, I create pieces that appeal to the viewers’ sense of movement.

I am most influenced by the ongoing processes of wind and rain and their effects on humans, animals, and the abstractions of life itself. I often incorporate photography, fiber, found materials, and hand-colored papers to enhance my subject matter. I am always experimenting and trying new techniques: adding and subtracting, layering, and simplifying to express the movement within.

My goal as an artist is to awaken the viewers to the constantly changing world around us.
