Formerly known by the pseudonym Renata Gill, the artist was born in Casablanca, Morocco.
His essentially figurative work is characterized by his sense of aesthetics, in which the purity and sophistication of form emanate strength and power.
Some sculptures also express detachment, wisdom and inner serenity.
Others, more abstract or rough, reflect an inner philosophical questioning, on the vanity of existence, or the existential quest, its ephemerality, or even the disquieting strangeness of reality.
The creative process springs from his innermost being, through the figurative representation of the work to be accomplished, to its final realization in a single jet.
“The question of identity lies at the heart of Renata’s work, at the shifting boundaries between the real and the imaginary.
