Frequent and long-time Street Art contributor Rene is a sprightly 90-year-old daughter of an architect, who enjoys sketching nature and wildlife, but finds herself instinctively returning to abstract geometric patterns and collage. Arthritis makes the intricate cutting of her earlier, photography-derived compositions inspired by Matisse’s Cut Outs difficult these days. So she has taken to working with simpler shapes, using coloured paper or painting on white paper to create her joyful, spontaneous, playful pieces.
She lives in London and submits her artworks via the 240 Project, a health activity centre for people affected by homelessness and exclusion. She often visits her artist daughter in Norfolk. “She wants me to move there,”saysRene. “But what would I do in Norfolk? I’d be bored. I have all my art groups here. There’s only one bus into town a day. Boring.
