"Rene is a great artist who teaches us to view space, motion and time with a challenging new perspective. Through the unique lens of his art he reveals a secret, interior architecture of light and form, transforming the ordinary into the magical. He has created a new, imaginative dimension in his work - that of an intense optimism and compassion for the world he sees around him. "
