renée mathews


Renée Mathews is an interdisciplinary artist with a practice that taps into drawing, sculpture, collage, writing, photography, and movement. Driven by an insatiable and often childlike curiosity, her thoughts and therefore her work tend to revolve around concepts of time, spirituality, and inner worlds. Born in Toronto and raised in Mississauga, Renée now lives in Montréal where she is pursuing a BFA in Studio Art at Concordia University.
