“I do not remember when I was in one place for more than 3 weeks — I am the ‘Man of the Universe!’” explains Mike Renard, whose determined mobility across the globe is vividly manifested in his three-dimensional work. He finds inspiration in beauty and composure, as well as collapse and despair that prevail our contemporary landscape, in disparate corners of the universe, which the human condition duplicates.”
 
Mobility is equally crucial for viewers of his arresting bronze sculptures, which reveal their complete identities only after a full journey encompasses them. “It is the other side that creates the mystery and intrigue that excites interest, and evokes the answer for what the sculptor wanted to say and express,” he explains.

The Big

23x39x29in

59x99x73cm

The Big is a sculptural interpretation about the fragility of life. Despite the size of the dinosaur and elephant, these two enormous earthly creatures, one is gone from a massive extinction and the other barely exists in a global environment that is precipitating a similar fate. The juxtaposition of the dinosaur and elephant in this sculpture makes a profound statement about the importance of respecting wildlife and preserving a species that play an important role in our natural environment before they become extinct."

Rhino Beetle

12x21x12in
31x54x30cm

A sculptural depiction of the fragility of our environment, where both small and large scale life forms are in danger of extinction.

CrabBird

14x15x12.6in
36x38x32cm

A statement of a natural interdependence, where one of life’s creations flies freely across the skies as another crawls on the ocean’s floor, each ultimately relying on each to sustain survival.

Symphony

28x12x7.5in
72x30x19cm

A composition of life that merges the visually flowing curves of a female form with the harmonious and sensual sounds of a traditional Ukrainian musical instrument, the “bandura.”

La Piovra

8x16x15in
21x41x38 cm

A work intended to be a social comment about corruption. Titled after the Italian word for “octopus,” it is a slang term often used for organized crime, and the seven tentacles represent Christianity’s “Seven Deadly Sins.” In the artwork’s alternative view, corruptive money is often referred to as “cabbage.”
