Argentinean by nature New Yorker by heart, Maria Paula Rennis came to the US on a Fulbright Scholarship for her master’s at Pratt Institute. She started studying painting at The Art Students League of NY and discovered her love of figurative paining.


She created a new vocabulary for one’s perception of the human form. This is a perception that abstracts

the figure into the elements of color,

light, shadow and movement in a superlative yet harmonious way.


Not afraid to reframe the familiar, she seeks to challenge the viewer’s perspective of the human form and

it’s relationship to the known.
