About Renée Chabot

Renee Chabot

Dutch-Swiss artist Renée Chabot fuses her background of photography, architecture and light design into an exploration of space between perception and reality. Her experimental process is infused by the science of mind, matter and energy and vast international  experience depicting her  creative journey of “dematerialization” in a metaphysical sens. Through her lens she transforms reality into material and non material abstractions and reconstructed narrative imagery. Touching our optical, emotional unconsciousness, resulting in deep works that sit between the genres of photography, painting and sculpture. Renée Chabot is working and living between Switzerland and Portugal.
