Patrick Renner's sculpture is an interjection in space that as a result challenges the viewer. It also represents a place in time, a moment-marker in 4-D, a bridge between the past and the future. He works with discarded material because of its embedded history and because it is something people no longer find valuable. Architectural refuse is especially useful since it comes from things that already delineate space and dictate the way people function. At Sculpture Space Renner completed the fabrication of eight fiberglass panels that, when put together, will produce a six-foot ball that he intends to roll from Sculpture Space to New York City in 2009. He received his BFA from the Kansas City Art Institute and his MFA in Sculpture from the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. He has shown in venues throughout the US, and in Cuba. He lives and works in Houston, Texas.
