"I am most interested in how objects accumulate in our everyday spaces. My work is motivated by the drama of landscapes and waterways, urban and rural.
I experiment by collecting and transforming everyday materials, especially throwaways. Through photography, drawing, and sculptural installation my notions play upon the unpredictable juxtaposition of natural and synthetic matter." - Reenie Charriere
