Hand of Self/Mother/God

Created by, Ren Wolfe

Through my practice I excavate childhood memories to reveal hidden narrative that explore how we perform our sense of ‘self’. My work is influenced by childhood games of playing pretend, and this notion of play is at the heart of my practice. I draw from a varied well of inspiration including; medieval manuscript illustrations, my own memories, puppetry, and theatre sets and costumes. From this I create informal and playful sculptures made of papier-mâché, painted cardboard, and textiles. Each piece reflects a messiness that defiantly refutes elitism in favour of humour and heart.
