Rene Rietmeyer creates abstract, three-dimensional wall objects that he calls “Boxes.” These works address his personal existence within time and space. Through formal means such as shape, color, texture, composition, and choice of materials, Rietmeyer visualizes his experiences of a certain region or a specific person encountered at a particular place and time. His work is about expressing his own existence, about living a conscious life, and creating an awareness of existence in others...see the entire article in the print version of July/August's Sculpture magazine.
