Renee’s work is inspired by images of young girls and women originating from found photographs. Renee chooses portraits of children who are posed in formal clothes and settings frequently holding or surrounded by political or religious artefacts. She is interested in the process of domestication and conditioning which the children seem to be subjected to and in which they appear patient, content or quietly mutinous as they wait and hope to become themselves.

About The Space
Geddes Gallery: Geddes Gallery is a pop up gallery that is currently located in a building that was previously the wonderful Italian deli, K C Continental at 26 Caledonian Road. This unique space was the local deli of our namesake, Jim Geddes (1932-2009) who lived next door. Geddes was a prolific artist who created hundreds of ceramics in his basement, which he had turned into an art studio.
