Description "Follow The Leader," a large framed blue oil and acrylic painting by Renée, shows that the connection between nature, technology and people are paramount. Rey's piece is influenced by the mythical qualities of Tiepolo, the surrealism of Dali, and the multi-dimensionality of Asian art, an homage to her birthplace in Japan. Rey creates a tiered stage in which flora, fauna, engineered cityscape and children play a part in the sustainability of an alternate universe. In this safe space, the artist encourages conversation about individual and collective responsibility for the environmental and leadership for and by future generations to come.

Renée Rey is a painter and mixed media artist working in southwest Florida and New York City. In Rey's telescopic and intimate artwork, she challenges traditional landscapes and self-portraits transforming them in mythopoetic universes disrupting primordial and natural systems. Formal language of abstraction and realism are ruptured and conflated in saturated color, staccato mark-making and symbolic iconography exploring seemingly disparate associations between identity, cultural diversity, science, religion, technology and the environment.

During her 26 year career, Rey's artwork has been selected for national awards and exhibitions by art professionals, museum curators and gallerists, and has been collected internationally. The artist has studied visual art and art history on the undergraduate and graduate levels in New York and Florida. She holds and MBA in Management.
