bronze & steel
19 x 34 x 9 1/2 inches
Rennert states - “For the last several years my work has focused on my past experiences in the competitive world of business. Mixing the traditional medium of bronze and contemporary forms of flat laser cut steel, I have illustrated themes and concepts of every day work life. Initially I had hoped to have depicted popular culture's ideas on achievement and success in an ironic and humorous fashion. However, over the past years, the work has taken on a more serious tone as I illustrate more about the thoughts and ideas we all deal with in contemporary society. While not everyone wears a suit, I feel the themes transcend to the everyman.”
